“Charming little shop on a garden”
Review of Wren House Garden & Shop - CLOSED

Wren House Garden & Shop
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Two talented artists. One does lino cuts, which are available as framed art or cards. The other creates birds and dogs in stitchery on pillows made from vintage blankets. Wren House is very close to East Sooke Park. Their work is also available at the artisans' gallery at Butchart Gardens.

We love to visit local galleries while in and around Sooke and my friend, familiar to the area, was keen to take me to this tiny one she'd found called "The Wren House" while we were exploring the East Sooke Road and Metchosin vicinity (we lunched at the My Chosen Cafe). There is a lovely regional park with a trail to Iron Mine Bay beach worth visiting not far from this home that has a tiny, charming gallery on site. The mother and daughter team create wonderful art and woolen pillows embroidered with birds and animals. The immaculate garden is filled with boxwood and rosemary in all shapes-I believe they sell the topiary pots too. The daughter's art is also very bird oriented; beautiful framed lino cut prints and limited edition prints at various affordable prices. The wool pillows that are hand embroidered and framed pieces are simply delightful. It a good idea to call ahead - the owner was ever so accommodating to be there for us and so friendly. We visited close to the dinner hour and left not only with our purchases but also with fresh basil and tomatoes from her greenhouse! Definitely worth stopping by for a visit!
