BUILDING WITH STONE: Charles McRaven, Stone Masonry Workshop

Bitterroot Valley, Stevensville, Montana

June 21-25, 2010

Class size limited to 15 participants.

Cost: $750 per person.

For Homeowners, Landscapers, Masons, Builders, Architects or anyone simply interested in rocks or stonework--this is a remarkable opportunity to learn from one of the country's most talented and renowned stone masons--Charles McRaven.

Spend a week with master stonemason Charles McRaven learning traditional techniques of building with stone including dry stack retaining walls, foundations, mortared walls & veneer, and walkways. Participate in a variety of real stone projects while using hands-on, time-tested methods. Learn to choose and shape stone, select & use proper tools and move rocks safely. Develop skills that will enable you to undertake your own stone building projects. Some advanced skills (arches, buttresses, fire box) will be demonstrated. McRaven has taught stone masonry workshops for decades in the Eastern U.S. but this is his first workshop in the West.



McRaven is the author of:
The Stone Primer, Stonework, Building with Stone, Building and Restoring the Hewn Log House, The Classic Hewn-Log House, The Blacksmith's Craft, and Country Blacksmithing.

Early registration recommended.
