This workshop is part of the Public Programme for the exhibition of Constance Spry
Inspired by our Constance Spry exhibition, master floristry teacher from the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies Michael Bowyer will lead this workshop in the principles and techniques of Spry’s floristry, and how to use them to create a beautiful seasonal arrangement. You will use a mixture of garden flowers and foliage in a Spry inspired container.
You will be able to take your arrangements and container home with you.
