If you dream of the ‘chink chink chink’ sound of a rock hammer forming a stone to meet a wall, then surely you need to be in the Bluegrass in the late days of summer. This fall we are offering 8 events for the beginner and professional dry stone mason.
Dry stone masons can:
- Choose between 6 workshops this fall
- Take a certification exam
- And participate in the 8th Annual National Walling Competition
After a couple months of design and tinkering under the hood, we have released our new website. Our goal is to offer the most desired content on our homepage without much fuss and distraction. Here a visitor can find where we have been active recently in dry stone projects, our latest news (such as this!) and of course, the all-important Spring/Fall Workshop schedules & registration.
Let us know what you think and how we can improve our new site.
