Working With Stone: From Design to Install 2009
2009 Ohio State University Nursery Short Course
Sunday, January 25th, 2009
An in-depth workshop on everything that is stone, from evaluating the situation, to interviewing what the client needs to the actual design, and finally the install.
I will show several case -studies of various types of jobs so you can get an idea of what’s involved in getting into these types of projects. Large boulder using cranes to medium work with a skid-steer to working with wall stone, and even some wet work and paving ideas/projects.
I’ll get into a lot of stone usages and I am even prepared to go further/deeper into one subject if that’s what the majority of the class asks for.
I’m here to give you a look at stone and ways of “looking” at stone you may not have thought of.
With work in over a dozen states and using stone from The Rockies to the Appalachians down thru the Smokies to using Caine Creek Boulders, and gold quarry waste, I’ve worked with a lot of stone.
More info to follow, I will even discuss what options are available for class participants to come here and ask about something specific to add to the workshop
What to bring to maximize the class:
Bring along some of your favorite drawing pens, pencils, markers as we look at better ways to render, draw stone . . . allowing you(the Designer) to better communicate with the client what it is you are trying to achieve.
Areas of the Workshop:
- Rendering Stone
- The Designer/Client process
- What’s available to use in Ohio
- Why Stone over concrete block
and much more As I flesh this out
