Dry Stone Walling Association - Cheshire Branch Registered Charity 289678
A Walker Jones Design
The Cheshire Branch runs at least two training courses
each year for beginners.
The courses are held at weekends and enable beginners
to receive instruction from qualified wallers.
The current cost of a course is £100.00 per person , or £85.00
when enrolled within 10 days of a show, or £50.00 under the
age of 25 for the two days and details of the venue and dates
can be found on the diary opposite. Course gift vouchers can be
purchased and can be redeemed later in the year.
You will need to take a packed lunch, drinks, wear good all
weather clothing, strong footwear and a pair of strong
gloves. All tools will be provided.
During the two days we aim to cover stripping out an existing
wall, grading the stone, setting out walling pins and lines,
preparation of foundations, wall building including foundations,
first lift, through stones, second lift and coping stones. Armed
with this basic knowledge you will be in a position to build
your own wall but to improve much practice will be needed.
We put together a calendar of events and activities, including dates of our Training
Courses, at the beginning of each year.
