Stone Carving Festival & Legacy Dry Stone Bridge - Summer 2016 - Perth

From July 22 - 24, 2016, stone carvers from Canada, the U.S. and Europe gathered in Perth, Ontario to display their skills and creativity at the 7th annual Canadian Stone Carving Festival created by Smith & Barber-Sculpture Atelier Inc. 

The public auction of the completed works raised over $10,000.00 for Habitat for Humanity.  Check out the gallery of works and familiar faces!

 

Dry stone bridge with carved keystones in Perth, Ontario.

Dry Stone Canada, including wallers from the UK, US, and across Canada built a beautiful dry stone bridge in Perth.  Our Masonry students cut and shaped the voissoirs - surrounding the carved keystones.
