Building With Stone: The Basics & Beyond
Immerse yourself in a stone building workshop at the Round River Farm (48 miles southwest of Grand Marais). The farm is an operating organic Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm that works toward balancing its needs with what the land can provide. It's the perfect setting for this building with stone class. Students learn 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 avoid, which cement mix to use depending on the building technique, and explore interior non-structural stone building applications. Students will work and learn at different stone building 'stations,' encountering varied building techniques and strategies.
