Fencebuilding Workshop with Scott Dobson at Fieldwork. May 2012

At the beginning of May (2012) fieldwork  organized and hosted a workshop with local fencebuilder Scott Dobson.  Scott, a master in heritage fence-building (as well as creative rail sculptures) has been building gorgeous fences across Ontario for years.  He gave us a good day's worth of guidance while we built the sheep fence that now surrounds the parking area at fieldwork.  The day began with a talk from Eugene Fytch (pictured below) who has been studying the history of  Lanark county fences for many decades (and also has several books on the subject). It was a great day and what an addition to the site!  Many thanks to all the (18) participants - young and old - who came to help out and learn some solid fencing techniques.
