DSWA Workshop south of San Francisco, California

Friday, January 29, 2010 to Saturday, January 30, 2010
Redwood City
Beginner Seminar

Students learned about dry stone wall techniques including cheekends, throughs, stiles, batter, hearting and copes. We will used a local random stone and built a beautiful permanent wall on Lyngso property where it is visible for anyone to take visitors or prospective clients to see. We built a small arch too. This 2-day workshop was taught by instructors from Canada. There was a presentation of interesting dry stone work across North America presented by the founder of the DSWAC on the second day of this workshop.

This lovely curved wall and arch was the end result of two days teaching at Redwood California.

The sun rose to cast a warm light on the wall this morning, the day after the workshop. Thanks to all the students who have written in already to thank us for coming to Lyngso to put on this workshop. 



Here are the happy wallers enjoying the results of the dry stone wall workshop in Redwood City California this weekend.


Students pose for a picture on the first day of the two-day hands-on dry stone wall workshop that was run at Redwood California this weekend.

The weather is great and the people are wonderful.

The stone is very challenging.
