Wychwood Walling Course
03 November 2021, 10:00 - 16:00 ( Add to calendar )
If you're considering a change of career or just wish to learn a new skill, drystone walling could be for you. Here in the Wychwood Forest we practice Cotswold Drystone Walling using the local Oolitic limestone. On this beginners' course you can expect to learn about: stripping down a wall, grading and sorting stone, base stones, building stones, throughs and toppers. Using local stone and local methods you will learn the tools and techniques necessary to build a drystone wall in the Cotswold style.
There will be a portaloo and warm drinks at the course, but please bring your own lunch.
Bring sturdy boots and appropriate clothing. Booking is essential, maximum 6 places, £45. Contact on the day: Toby Swift 07981 134804.
Wednesday 3 November, 10am–4pm, Foxburrow Wood, Witney.
