Haliburton School of Arts - 5 day workshop

Sunday, August 4, 2013 to Friday, August 9, 2013
Haliburton Ontario

The week of August 5th to 9th John Shaw-Rimmington taught an intensive five day dry stone walling course at Haliburton School of the Arts - Flemming College.  Sixteen students created a permanent stone art installation in the main parking lot  at the school called 'The Unity Gate'. The curvy wall of this installation will have a covering of sedum growing on it eventually.  The emphasis of this workshop was on what is termed 'Dryscaping' – the structural use of natural stone in landscape applications without man made products such as glue, rebar, cement, concrete blocks or imitation stone.

Unity gate was a variation of this dry stone feature called " C to C" which was built by students taking the five day course John Shaw-Rimmington taught at the Haliburton School Arts several years ago.
