The International Masonry Institute (IMI) held a week long Masonry Camp at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine. The masonry camp brings architectural students or young architects and masonry apprentices or new journeymen together to live and work in an isolated setting. The campers are divided into teams and given a masonry design problem. During the week, each team develops its own solution, then constructs some element of the design. Interspersed among the sessions devoted to work on the project were sessions led by IMI instructors on the full range of the trowel trades: not only bricklaying and blocklaying but also tile-setting, plastering, mosaic work, terrazzo, stonemasonry, and stone carving. The teams completed their projects and presented their designs to the whole group. Most of the projects exhibited two or more masonry materials, including brick, standard and split-face concrete block, and glass block. Some also incorporated stucco and ceramic tile, giving participants a chance to try a couple of the other trowel trades in which they had received instruction.
