Beginners Training Courses

We run several dry stone walling courses for beginners each year.

Usually three courses are held in the Otley area and two in the Leyburn area of North Yorkshire. DSWA qualified instructors lead the courses supported by experienced wallers from the Branch. You can find out more in the Training Guide and book on a course using the Booking form.  Note, we also offer Gift Certificates

Places are currently available on all dates

The DSWA run a certification scheme for professional and amateur wallers and we run a couple of certification days every year.  You can get an application form and apply through the DSWA website.


Many of our students send us feedback on their experience of our courses.  You may send us yours through our contacts page.
