    Hello there- I was late on learning about your Hinesburg workshop… only got to stop by and view the trail head wall build.

    I notice your other workshops are all back in BF. Will you be having any other Chittenden County workshops? If not are there other recommended workshops a novice could take around here?

    There are two organizations I am aware of that offer the opportunity to gain a mastercraftsman certificate in dry stone walling. The Dry Stone Walling Association, based in Great Britain,, and the Dry Stone Conservancy in Lexington, Kentucky

    The Dry Stone Conservancy is set up to train wallers in a professional setting. The DSWA runs educational and testing venues only. There are at least six DSWA mastercraftsmen/examiners in the USA (see “overseas” and “professional list” on the DSWA website). Some masters in the craft employ “up and coming” wallers. I work alone, but am occasionally involved in instructing workshops
