2008 Canton Beginners Seminar

Friday, February 22, 2008 to Saturday, February 23, 2008
Canton, Ontario
Beginner Seminar




Here is the new wall and arch built by students at the Feb 23-24 Dry Stone Walling Across Canada Indoor Workshop held in Canton Ontario.

Several students from the US couldn't make it because of freezing
rain on the east coast, but three enthusiasts came from closer to home and still one
other flew in from Bakersfield California.

The structure was built using local random limestone which is
relatively inexpensive. The niche feature was designed by the students to hold a small plant
or sculpture. Students also learned to split granite boulders with
the feather-and -wedge method. Lunches were described as 'spectacular' by everyone who partook of this our last workshop for the 2008 winter season.
