The week of August 5th to 9th John Shaw-Rimmington taught an intensive five day dry stone walling course at Haliburton School of the Arts - Flemming College. Sixteen students created a permanent stone art installation in the main parking lot at the school called 'The Unity Gate'. The curvy wall of this installation will have a covering of sedum growing on it eventually. The emphasis of this workshop was on what is termed 'Dryscaping' – the structural use of natural stone in landscape applications without man made products such as glue, rebar, cement, concrete blocks or imitation stone.
