Learn how to use chicken wire to make garden sculptures and make this stunning Fuchsia flower for your garden.

This full day workshop will run from 10.00-4.30/5.00 on Friday 8th May. We supply all the materials to make a flower (approx 30cm x 40cm) with a pair of leaves. Also included is a light lunch and refreshments. Cost per person: 55€ – (scroll to the bottom of the page for booking info)

The flower can be attached to a wire for hanging or you can add a stake to mount it amongst plants in your border. (additional cost for the stake)

The Fuchsia flower can be sprayed in a number of Fuchsia colour combinations or left plain (colour spray at additional cost) .

Chicken wire is fairly malleable and easy to bend using pliers but does require a little strength and dexterity, plus a little patience to make a large or complex sculpture. This workshop is suitable for beginners – we will assist anyone who requires a little help to complete their flower.
