School of rock

Yesterday John Bland and I visited Algonquin College in Perth Ontario. John Scott showed us around. the totally new campus building they have there now. The new masonry and carpentry facilities were pretty impressive.

John Bland was a student of the Heritage Masonry Program at the college back in 2007-2008. In fact the dry stone pillar and wall in this photo, made of Tackaberry limestone and yellow and pink Perth sandstone was one of the projects his class worked on that year.

The other project his class participated in was this small double arched bridge which we built in two days. I remember it was run as a workshop in June on the weekend of my 59th birthday.
