Sundial Workshop at Landis

Written By Editor on 7/23/23 | 7/23/23

August 1, 10 AM - Noon

ESPERANCE — Geoff Miller, builder of the vertical sundial at Landis Arboretum, 174 Lape Rd, Esperance, will be presenting the methodology for constructing a vertical sundial, so that you can make one for the location of your choice. The beautiful dial at Landis is mounted on the south wall of their barn, photo below. It includes month & day. I recommend bringing your lunch as well as drinks in case the workshop is longer than 2 hours. If you don’t know the arboretum grounds there are hundreds of acres and 15 miles of trails. 

Please call or email Sarah Johnston (518-332-2426 if you plan to attend.

The presenter recommends “Sundials: their theory and construction,” by Albert E Waugh. It’s a great book that includes history, charts and equations. In the back is a section on how, including photos of a young boy scout cutting out a wooden gnomon. Used copies are available for about $8 on the web.
