Enrol in Dry Stone Structures at the Haliburton School of Art + Design

Summer may be coming to an end, but your art adventure continues!

Join our Haliburton School of Art + Design (HSAD) Dry Stone Structures Course this September to learn to design and build dry-laid structures that are both beautiful and functional.

Explore this ancestorial technique and gain deep knowledge with HSAD’s Instructor and the president of Dry Stone Walling Across Canada, John Shaw Rimmington. John has spent many years specializing in restoring historic stone and brick buildings, eventually extending his craft to using stone in landscaping and building traditional dry stone walls. His expertise comes from his comprehensive research into masonry practices and traditional stonework in Britain, where he worked with professionals associated with the Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain.

Instruction during the course will include the proper use of masonry tools, the basics of structural masonry without mortar, and reference design features with SketchUp. Put your knowledge into practice and collaborate to build a dry stone feature collectively as a group.
