THE ART OF STONE
May 21 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$1050 – $1460
This five-day intensive course will teach the art of building with natural stone and the intelligence and logic behind it. This course will focus on flatwork and sculptural elements, like archways. Class discussions will include the science behind an arch and engineering the wooden form for its support while under construction. Taking things outside, we’ll create the footings and talk about stone types and wall form and structure. The lay of the land and the interests of the class participants will define the design, including exactly what and where we will build. This course will take you beyond basic stone masonry and into the realm of stonework as an art form.
