Somei Back reviewed: Two day dry stone walling course at Pensychnant near Conwy, North Wales

"Attended course in July 2022 with Colin and thoroughly enjoyed the two days where we dismantled and rebuild a wall and learned to repair another. Colin’s quiet and hands-on teaching methods quickly put me at ease and enhanced the learning experience. I recommend this course to anyone who is curious about the heritage crafts and want to find out how they are built. Many thanks from Somei Back"

"A thoroughly enjoyable experience, great tuition, relaxed environment and very rewarding weekend."

Dry Stone Walling Association North Wales Branch responded:

" Thanks for that Fiona. It was a very nice course with lovely people. Iolo misjudged how much we would get done as we were all so quick and competent but it was nice to have a leisurely tea and cake at the centre and chat. Regards Paul"

Philip Burrows reviewed: Two day dry stone walling course at Rhyd y Creuau Field Studies Centre near Betws y Coed, North Wales

"Both my wife and I attended the course and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We now have the courage and knowledge to dismantle our decrepit and ageing dry stone wall and rebuild it. Fab two days and Colin and Paul the instructors were, knowledgeable, pleasant and approachable. Highly recommended if you are interested in dry stone walls."

Dry Stone Walling Association North Wales Branch responded:

" Thanks for that lovely review Philip. I am just a keen amatuer and not a qualified instructor. I like coming on the courses to meet those who have booked and keep my hand in. So glad you and Cath enjoyed the course. Regards Paul"
