Additional Information

Workshop Logistics

The Conservancy strives to maintain a ratio of one experienced instructor per six participants, thus assuring plenty of individual attention. A typical workshop includes from 6 to 12 participants, with no more than 18 permitted. Stone Dressing Clinics are limited to four participants and run for only one day each (see more information on the next page). Introductory and Certification Prep Workshops run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. both days, beginning with a brief introduction to dry stone masonry construction and safety, followed by two days of hands-on instruction while restoring or building a dry stone fence or retaining wall. The Conservancy will provide work gloves, safety glasses and rock or brick hammers for those who do not already own or plan to buy them in advance of the workshop.

Workshop Registration

The two-day workshop fee is $300.00. The one-day Stone Dressing Clinic fee is $200.00. The fee includes a copy of our training manual Building and Repairing Dry Stone Fences & Retaining Walls (other materials for the Stone Dressing Clinic) to be handed out on the first day of the workshop, plus online access prior to the workshop for viewing our training videos Walls of Stone and Building and Repairing Rock Fences and Retaining Walls. Lunches are also included; however, if you have any unusual dietary restrictions please plan to bring your own food. Additionally, upon successful completion of an introductory workshop, participants are then eligible to participate on the Conservancy’s Volunteer Work Days at no cost! For more information about our Volunteer Work Days, please contact the office.
