Learn dry stone building techniques in New Haven

NEW HAVEN — On the evening of Wednesday, April 27, Charley MacMartin will present the basic principles behind building a dry-laid stone wall in a talk at the New Haven Community Library.
Creating a lasting structure of function and beauty draws upon a waller’s two best friends:  gravity and friction. MacMartin will discuss the challenges involved in Vermont, where the types of stone are as diverse as the terrain. There will be plenty of time for questions and sharing stories about favorite walls in our state. The talk begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
MacMartin is a dry-stone waller based in Hinesburg and a professional member of the Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain. His stonework emphasizes the use of local stone and the preservation of historic stone walls. He leads a series of introductory stone wall workshops each winter in Hinesburg.
His stonework has been featured in Seven Days and on Vermont Public Radio.
The New Haven Community Library is accessible. For more information call 453-4015.
