Friday, January 19, 2007 to Saturday, January 20, 2007
Students came from as far away as Ottawa and Vancouver Island to take this third workshop Jan 20-21, 2007 in the series of individual indoor weekend courses taught by The Dry Stone Walling Across Canada this winter at Bethany Ontario. A small cloister (writing area, herb garden or place to have tea perhaps?) was built on the second day, after the students learned the basics on 20 tons of flatter random limestone the day before. A wonderful 'happy hour' and lasagna supper was provided for the class on the Saturday evening by a former DSWAC student, Debra Northey and her husband Dave, who live nearby. Thanks guys. Debra visited the site later to see the newly completed walls and said that they almost made her cry. We are hoping she meant they were so beautiful.
