Kingsmere Walling Workshop - Part 1

I returned last weekend to teach another workshop just outside Ottawa at the historic Kingsmere Farm, original residence of Prime Minister Mackenzie King.

I was asked to repair this section of wall (?) that you see here.

The stones looked very round and awkward to work with and completely uncooperative.

Nevertheless despite extreme heat humidity and rain we completed the task of building a beautiful wall. Stay tuned to see how seven enthusiastic students and their instructor tackled the project.
