Educator. Empowerer. Craftsman.

My mission is to empower & inspire others by teaching globally-informed drystone masonry techniques, to share images of stonework, and to leave a legacy of stone installations. I leave a mark on history by helping others make theirs.

Learning Drystone Masonry

Drystone Joe gives presentations, hands-on workshops, and also artist residencies in schools and colleges. These range from 30-minute presentations to month-long  residencies. All ages are engaged learning international standards . Host sites gain new or restored stonework as a result.

“Thanks for a great lesson and also the engaging puzzle activity this morning. The kids certainly enjoyed their first day with you. We look forward to having Drystone Joe here tomorrow!”

“First of all, the balance of theory and practice was perfect! The workshop was  engaging from start to finish. It was also a good value for the cost and time.”

“The notecards are stunning images of your stonework. The textured paper is also perfect for them. They look and feel like soft stone surfaces.”

“Joe did a great job re-using our existing stone. His choice of new capstones also made for a great sitting wall. As a result, our whole family and our cat enjoys it.”
