London School of Dry Stone Walling Workshop at Southwark Cathedral
Sat 6 May 2017, 12:30 – 14:30 BST
For the first time at Southwark Cathedral’s courtyard, London School of Dry Stone Walling hosts a unique short course. Participants are offered a practical introduction to the heritage and craft of building walls using natural stone without mortar.
Over three days, a large freestanding wall is created by workshop participants. From placing foundation stones up to first lift, installing 'through stones', working on second lift and securing top stones, visitors can watch the progression throughout the course of the week.
