Award Winning Horticulturalists Make Life-Size Chicken Wire Sculptures

Paul and Caroline Wright are award winning horticulturalists who have over 30 years of combined teaching experience. They taught in a university in the field of Horticulture, Arboriculture, Garden design and construction. Before they moved to France permanently they spent all their annual leave doing renovation projects and developing the house and garden at La Guinandie.

Besides working with the soil and growing plants, they enjoy making sculptures to decorate gardens. They regularly conduct variety of courses including chicken wire sculpture class where the participants learn to construct basic to more complex sculptures with a metal wire. I absolutely love their owls! Their sculptures are life-size and look real that will make the passersby pause and admire them along with your garden. The details related to their future events and classes can be found on their website - Le Jardin Creatif.
