Express Yourself!: Flower Arranging a la Constance Spry, Wednesday, January 15th, 6-8PM
In this hands-on workshop with designer Matt Weinstein, we will learn about the life and flower arranging style of the legendary English floral designer Constance Spry. Born to a working-class family in Derby, England, Constance Spry would go on to single-handedly reinvigorate and reimagine the entire English tradition of flower arranging. With a particular focus on self-expression in arranging, Constance Spry developed an array of imaginative techniques to achieve original, unconventional results. In this course, participants will learn some of these very skills, and be encouraged to express their true self with delightfully unusual materials. At the end, each participant will be given an opportunity to share a few words about their inspiration and vision before taking something truly wonderful home. No prior experience necessary. Vase and plant materials will be provided. Image is from a similar class; vase and plant materials will not be exactly the same.
