Skills needed: Whilst it is preferable if you have done some dry stone walling before, we can do some training for people with no experience. However, you must contact us before booking to ensure that we have the capacity for training on a certain day. Please email events supervisor Jan Darrall to confirm capacity before booking places: [email protected]

*We are happy to help train people who will use their skills to help us out in future. However, if you want to learn dry stone walling for your own use, ie repair your garden walls, we suggest that you contact the Dry Stone Walling Association who run excellent courses for beginners http://www.drystonewallingcumbria.org/beginners-courses/
