Training with West Country Walling
We offer a few select training opportunities for people wishing to learn the craft of dry stone walling. Trainees are employed on a project-by-project basis and are paid on a daily rate according to their skill level and experience. It is preferable (although not essential) that trainees are self-employed.
Inexperienced trainees will start to learn about working with natural stone by providing support to the skilled craftsmen. Over time, they will be taught how to lay stone and carefully pack the walls before moving onto the various features associated with the projects we run.
Our aim in the future is to run educational courses, offering individuals a taster experience where they learn the basic principles and can then decide on whether they wish to take their skills further.
