Vermont Fine Wood Working School


Learn the basic principles of dry stone walling and simple arch building at the Vermont Fine Wood Working School. The class, "Art of Stone with Thea Alvin" will build walls and arches in combination, culminating in a long stone wall with a circular stone window opening.

Be prepared to have your concept of what stone walls are challenged

as you learn how they are constructed, a bit of history on walling, some theories about walling internationally, and how walls can bring people together

Taking a simple wall to the next step as a sculpture is a great pleasure, one that I am delighted to share with you. Come prepared to work... 

and to work hard!
