Wrigglin' Riddlin' Pickets and Palings - Newfoundland Fences
After a chat with Kim Paddon with the English Harbour Arts Centre last night at the Crow's Nest Storytelling Circle, I'm posting a few things related to traditional Newfoundland fences.
First, check out the 1977 Wrigglin' Fence video. This short film, directed by Newfoundland artist Don Wright, follows the Paddy Brothers of Port Kirwan, Newfoundland, as they build a traditional 'wrigglin' or riddle fence around their garden patch.
You can download our traditional fence brochure here in pdf.
And there are articles on wriggle fences in our past newsletters here and here.
