The sound of chisels on stone rang out over the 20 acre grounds at Kubota Gardens in Renton today. Over 300 tons of High Cascade granite will become an 8-foot high “ishi-gaki” stone base, for the new Terrace Overlook. They use the same techniques that were used to build Japanese castles before the 16th century. It will be completed during a two week workshop with 20 participants, August 7-20, 2014 – a community effort and rich East-West cultural experience. The public is encouraged to come and share this historical event. Watch as this amazing project transpires!
