Do you love nature, being outdoors and getting your hands dirty? If so, this could be for you! 

Spend a morning learning a new skill in this hands-on 3 hour introduction workshop. You will learn the basic principles of how to build a traditional dry stone wall and/or retaining wall, using local stone, and how it will benefit wildlife and support a range of creatures and insects. 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. The course covers basic construction techniques for a Devon dry stone wall. You can work at your own pace, with plenty of opportunity for discussion, then stand back and admire your craftsmanship and enjoy a slice of cake and a hot drink for your hard work!
