Dry Stone Bridge Workshop

A ten day dry stone bridge building course is going to be held near Brighton, Ontario next June 2017. 

A permanent stone bridge will be built by students to replace this old wooden footbridge on this lovely rural property. It will span about 12 feet across a fast flowing year round creek.

DSWAC has run seven bridge workshops in the past. We built Kay's Bridge 7 years ago over a two week period.  

The Salem Bridge course will be held during two consecutive 5 day work weeks. It will be taught by me and one other instructor.  Participants will get ten days of full hands-on experience learning to build a typical Scottish packhorse bridge. 

Providing there are no weather issues causing lost days, we are scheduling two days off during the weekend of June 22nd and June 23rd . 

Camping is available on site. The course fee of 130 dollars a day ( provided students attend the full ten days) has been deliberately set low to encourage stone enthusiasts with or without experience, not just professionals.  

In addition to students having the standard instructional printed material provided for this DSWAC course, registrants in the Salem Creek Bridge Workshop will get a copy of my recently published book How To Build Dry Stacked Walls and Bridges 


More details can be provided upon request.

Registration is limited and done by email only. Cheques only please. If you wish to be part of this unique dry stone workshop experience please write to,
