Our Dry Stone Walling classes are aimed at giving beginners an introduction to the art of building without mortar. We would expect by the end of the day that you will have an understanding of the basic principals involved in the creation of a dry stone wall, and feel confident enough to take on small sections by yourself.
On the day our tutors will begin by briefing you on the basic principals involved, and the types of tools required fro fry stone walling. This will lead to the practical part of the course where the tutor will demonstrate dry walling, before encouraging the pupil to take on a small section of wall in need of repair themselves.
The Dry Stone Walling course involves lifting and manual labour; however, you will not be expected to exceed what you are comfortable with.
