Building with Stone: The Basics

Course Overview

Understand the theory and know-how of building with stone using both the slip-form method and hand-building techniques. Learn which rock to use and to avoid, and which cement to use depending on the building technique. This course begins with an overview of rock work principles and progresses into a tactile, project-based learning environment. You work and learn at different stone building 'stations' (both slip-form and hand-building) so that you will gain sufficient knowledge and experience to return to your own property and build with stone.
