From Dust to Stone - Rory Young

The Court of Memory boundary wall: hand dressed stones laid in lime mortar

In his AWG talk on 20 May, Bro. Rory Young showed the wall he recently built to enclose The Court of Memory he is planning to create in a newly acquired space behind his house in Cirencester. The building process was filmed by Fred Hanbury, a young self-taught film maker, who shows the process of construction up to the triumphant insertion of the final stone. You can watch From Dust to Stone here. Presented without a spoken commentary, the film adds to our understanding of the hours of work and years of experience needed to carry out this apparently simple task, as explained by Rory in greater depth and detail in the lecture, available for Guild members to watch online.
