The Dry Stone Walling Festival in Grand Valley

The dry stone walling festival in Grand Valley, Ontario that took place over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend was well attended by walling enthusiasts from far and wide.

Thirty fearless folk braved wind and cold to participate in the workshops. Eric Landman, DeanMcLellan and their families did a fabulous job of bringing it all together for us. Patrick McAfee from Ireland and Norman Haddow from Scotland offered workshops in their regional styles.
I instructed a two day workshop in the DSWA of Great Britain set standard wall, or as Patrick refers to it, the "international" wall.
