Restoring Historical Stone Walls w. Patrick Ryan


Two-day off-site workshop. Learn the basics of building and restoring free-standing dry-laid stone walls under the instruction of a stone wall professional with over 20 years experience. Students will learn how to sort and choose stones, use gravity to create a stable structure, and carve their initials in the new wall. Ages 17+ Bring your own lunch, gloves, heavy boots, and a stone hammer (if you have one). Instructor Pat Ryan has been building stone walls since 1995. His stonework can be found at Brewery Ommegang, the Lakeview Event Center (in Laurens), and at numerous private residences and religious communities. Based in Oneonta, Pat travels the world looking at stone ruins. www.patryanstonework.com Cancellation Policy: Please consider carefully before signing up for one of our classes or purchasing for another person.
