Dry Stone Walling Workshop

  • Location South Molton
  • Price from £45.00


Come and learn dry stone walling in this practical 3 hour workshop at Quince Honey Farm, followed by a well-deserved lunch! You will learn the basic principles of how to build a traditional dry stone wall and /or retaining wall, using local stone quarried from Quince Honey Farm itself. You will also learn how to introduce wildlife features into the wall such as bird, bat and toad holes, bee boles, or perhaps just somewhere to place your drink! 

Dry stone walling is a positive and calming outdoors experience, and this workshop offers a great opportunity to learn a new skill, in the fresh air, surrounded by nature and wildlife. You can work at your own pace and there is plenty of opportunity for discussion. Stand back and admire your craftsmanship at the end of the workshop, and enjoy a Ploughman’s lunch in our award winning Nectary Restaurant as a reward for your hard work!
