DSWA Instructor Training

Eligibility Criteria: DSWA Level 2

25-26 March 2024

9am - 4pm


$ 1170

Since 2018 Stone of Arc has been working in partnership with the Dry Stone Walling Association (DSWA UK) to enable the delivery of the Craft Certification Scheme in Australia, setting standards by offering an accredited range of practical tests for trade professionals and aspiring dry stone wallers.


Combined with the delivery of the scheme is the need for instructors who are both competent in their craft and in their instructional training, therefore DSWA Level 2 or above must be attained before undertaking DSWA Instructor certification.


This will be the first time the DSWA Instructor training has been delivered outside the UK/US and it's hoped it can become an annual opportunity in Australia. The course will be delivered by Geoff Duggan (Master waller/Instructor/Examiner) and Emma Knowles (Advanced waller/Instructor) over two days, 9am - 4pm.


Course provides:

This course has been adapted for the Australian context and developed to improve the number and capacity of qualified instructors in Australia, encourage the teaching of traditional dry stone principles and improve national training standards.


Prospective DSWA Instructors will work through learning and teaching styles, delivery techniques, training course standards and dry stone wall instruction. There will also be small practical assignments to complete following the course.


On successful completion of this certification, instructors will be able to access DSWA UK-approved training materials and conduct DSWA UK endorsed dry stone workshops to the level of certification they personally hold.

"Walling to me is wholly engaging. It’s my gym, my art class, my mindfulness session and my trip to the country all rolled into one. It requires time, precision and order, patience, resilience, and attention to detail. It connects the past with the future and delivers a beautiful, sustainable structure and unrivalled sense of pride and satisfaction".
