Amherst Island has the largest known concentration of historic Irish dry stone walls in Canada. This workshop offers you a great opportunity to restore a portion of an existing wall while learning important walling elements such as hearting, batter, through-stones, coping, and the basic techniques of dry laid construction.
This 2-day workshop is designed for beginners as well as for those who have taken a workshop in the past. Instructors Karin Sprague and Tracy Mahaffey love what they do. Stone carving brings them joy and they want to share it with others who have an interest. Join us!
At the end of the workshop you will have your own stone carving to take home. This is the workshop for you if you always wanted to try stone carving or want to build on the knowledge you have.
Preparation: Select a word or two or design to carve. All tools and stone will be provided.
