Upcoming Classes

bluestone patio

Dimensional bluestone makes a lovely patio behind this modern Asheville home.

There are two new sections of the Do-It-Yourself Flagstone Paths and Patios workshop now registering via the North Carolina Arboretum’s website. The classes take place on Saturday, August 22nd and Friday, September 4th. They begin at 9:00 a.m. and run until 4:00 p.m. After a morning slideshow and discussion, the class moves outside. The Arboretum built a stone classroom in a clearing in the woods with a gigantic sandbox just for us. After some brief demonstrations of basic safety, stone-moving, and shaping techniques everyone gets to work applying what they’ve learned. Please contact me: marc (at) hammerheadstoneworks (dot) com with any questions or if you need help registering.
