Discovering New England Stone Walls
April 5, 2014
Meet Kevin Gardner will be will give a detailed account of the cultural and historical aspects of New England’s craft of placing stone and how the different styles that emerged and changed over time is significant to the famous New England landscape. Kevin will balance this with a discussion of restoration techniques, design, acquisition and preservation of the walls. During the program he will demonstrate the building technique by using tiny stones to create a miniature wall or walls on a tabletop. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Manchester Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency (www.massculturalcouncil.org).
