Building with Stone Workshops

Have you always wanted to build with stone but were not sure how to begin? The Schoharie River Center, announces two upcoming “building with stone” workshops, to take place on Sunday, September 29 from noon until 2:00 and Saturday, October 19 from noon until 3:00.  In these hands-on workshops with skilled artist and mason, Mark Swanberry, you’ll learn the mechanics and techniques of working with stone.

The workshop on September 29th is dedicated to dry wall stone construction, including the making of a laid-up stone wall.  

The workshop on October 19th will focus on “wet wall” construction using mortar.  Pre -registration is encouraged.  Use the form below, or call 518-875-6230 or

There is no charge for admission.  However, donations to the Schoharie River Center, a non-profit organization, are appreciated.


This workshop is supported in part with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a program of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature.
