Dry-stone Walling Courses in Saddleworth

Dry-stone Walling Association (DSWA) Keeping dry-stone walling alive in Saddleworth

For a gift that will last for years why not treat someone to a 2 day dry-stone walling course for only £75

DSWA have been running courses for over 20 years and provide instruction for both individuals and local authorities.

Dry-stone walling instructor, Chris Bolshaw says, “We are proud of our courses and we hope trainees learn a lot from them.”

  • Instruction is by qualified and experienced DSWA instructors
  • Lots of help from experienced branch members
  • Lovely sites to work at that have been specially prepared for trainees
  • Insurance with NFU Mutual
  • Provision of gloves and all tools and equipment
  • A simple clean toilet on site
  • Relevant written material to take away and read at leisure
  • Course content which has been carefully thought out
  • A friendly, relaxed working atmosphere with time to discuss issues and have a joke
  • A tangible result in the shape of a real wall which will stand for many years to come
  • Progression if trainees want to do more
