ALBANY — Held together by the forces of gravity and friction, New England stonewalls have passed the test of time. Learn the craft of dry stone walling with master craftsman, Chris Tanguay at the Tin Mountain stonewall building workshop on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 9 a.m. through 4 p.m., and/or Sunday, Sept. 16, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Come try your hand at the ancient art of stone wall building and leave a piece of yourself on the landscape. Participants will work as a team; placing specially chosen stones to build a freestanding stonewall off the back of the great room at the base of the hill. After the wall is finished the hill will be built up to cover the rock wall creating a retaining wall.
Tanguay is committed to constructing quality hardscapes to age old standards upheld by the Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain. Being one of seven certified Master Craftsmen in the United States and one of 163 in the world, you are ensured a project that will last a lifetime.
Tin Mountain nature programs are sponsored in part by L.L. Bean, the Evenor Armington Fund and Residence Inn by Marriott, North Conway. Upcoming fall programs will soon be posted at www.tinmountain.org and the Tin Mountain Facebook page.
