Stone wall building workshop June 25, 26


Learn the basics of building free-standing dry-laid stone walls at a two day workshop in Treadwell on Saturday and Sunday, June 25 and 26, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants will learn to sort and choose stones, use gravity to create a stable structure, and carve their initials in the new wall.

Cost is $200 per person ($180 for West Kortright Centre members), preregistration required. For participants aged 17+. Visit to register. Call 607-278-5454 or contact with any questions. Note: this is an off-site workshop in Treadwell, not at the West Kortright Centre in East Meredith. Participants will need to bring their own lunch, gloves, heavy boots, and a stone hammer (optional).

Instructor Pat Ryan, a stonework professional with over 20 years of experience, has been building stone walls since 1995. His stonework can be found at Brewery Ommegang, the Lakeview Event Center in Laurens, and at numerous private residences and religious communities. Based in Oneonta, Pat travels the world looking at stone ruins.
