Alexis Mastromichalis, founder of Gold Finch Designs will be discussing the principles of natural stone building and ecological benefits.
In partnership with the Berkeley Tool Library, she will share design principles and hands-on demonstrations on how to use various tools. Students will get to view plenty of examples and hopefully apply these skills and new knowledge to their own building project.
