About Gordon Gray
With over 20 years of experience, I am professionally qualified in the traditional craft of dry stone walling and since 2002, a DSWA Advanced Certificate Holder and Level 1 Instructor with the Dry Stone Walling Associated of Great Britain. I trained with a master craftsman and I am one of only two dry stone wallers in Scotland with the accreditation and quantity of work to support the DSWA in the Heritage Lottery funded apprenticeship scheme.
The DSWA is a self-governing charity dedicated to promoting the craft of dry stone walling through its nationally accredited craftsman certification scheme. They also run training courses and community projects. All registered professional wallers should work to the level of certification attained.
Further to this, I also volunteer with the West of Scotland Dry Stone Walling Association (WSDSWA) a local charity promoting the craft of dry stone walling through training courses and community projects. I assist in the training of novices, amateurs and professionals alike, project supervision and I serve as a Trustee.
