I have been incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel and work in many amazing places with talented people doing some very rewarding projects. This page is a small sampling of some of the workshops I've attended and experiences I bring with me to my work.
Amherst Island (2015)
The annual stone festival for Dry Stone Canada was an ambitious project that involved solar alignment, Irish music, and Rick Mercer.
Perth, Ontario received a brand new drystone bridge for it's 200th birthday.
I traveled to Italy in the fall of 2014 to learn the various building techniques used to construct a Trullo, the stone hut that is omnipresent in the region. To learn more about future workshops or to see Thea and Norman's work, click on their names above.
The Stone Foundation (2016) Gualala, CA
In 2016 I was able to attend the 14th Stonework Symposium which focused on stonework in the public realm. My focus at the symposium was Kevin Carman's pebble mosaic workshop.
I took my first official dry stone workshop in 2014 and have since come back as a volunteer and instructor. I cannot recommend highly enough the experience you gain from taking a workshop at the Stone Trust.
