Families of bricklayers have shaped the landscape of Westchester and the Lower Hudson Valley for more than 200 years. Their mark is all around us - in our homes, music halls, aqueducts and places of worship. In this workshop, participants will learn about the rich history of bricklaying in the region, will explore the structural significance and aesthetic beauty of various brick bond patterns and joints and, with professional guidance from Westchester bricklayers, build a wall by using introductory masonry techniques. The program will be led by men who represent three generations of the Cantamessa family, as well as brothers Mike and Pete Clifford, the Rockland and Westchester Field Reps for BAC Local 1 Union.
