Constance Spry – her legacy
Who was Constance Spry and why is she such an important figure in the world of floristry history?
On this short day course you will be taught all about who she was…florist, cook, teacher, wife, lover and health professional… and how her unique approach to floral design is so important to the modern day florist.
We will cover her life story, her shops, books, vases, royal weddings, her ‘white’ phase and most importantly her innovative use of materials, containers and found objects..
Georgia will demonstrate a ‘typical’ large scale Spry inspired urn design (from free) and discuss mechanics -especially how to create the designs authentically.
The second design YOU will create in one of Georgia’s many ‘Constance Spry’ boat vase. The flowers are yours to keep.
By the way..there is a fabulous exhibition coming to The Garden Museum in London later in the year on Constance Spry…organised by Shane Connoly.
