Metchosin Dry Stone Workshop on Vancouver Island

Metchosin BC
Beginner Seminar

Yahoo! A new dry laid arch is born in BC. Completed by enthusiastic students of dry stone walling the day before the famous Metchosin Day Country fair (which was held Sunday September 12th, 2010)  this gothic arch and garden structure is now a permanent feature of the fair grounds. 


A dry stone wall and arch was constructed enclosing a Garry Oak and native flower garden. The project  replaced a portion of wood fencing.

Some of the students stand around discussing the wall they have just built (using a locally quarried  blasted basalt) at the the completion of the two day workshop
