This fortress like partition put up by Steve of Sara's Garden Centre protected us from the wind and rain last Saturday and Sunday as students participated in what would have otherwise been a not very dry stone wall workshop in Brockport New York.
The finished walls appeared quite magically when the partition was removed on Sunday afternoon.
A before shot reveals all the awkward big round stones we had to work with and how happy we all were to try to work with them
The finished shot shows us all still in good spirits and in no way defeated by the stones or the weather.
Some us thought Norman was looking pretty cool in his new dark safety sunglasses.
I am a person who builds dry stone walls and bridges and thinks a lot about how to get other people discovering what a satisfying occupation it can be. I am founder and president of Dry Stone Walling Across Canada www.dswa.ca and an avid supporter of the idea of sharing knowledge freely and learning from others.
