Workshop | Wired Bouquets with Shane Connolly

This workshop is part of the Public Programme for the exhibition of Constance Spry

Shane Connolly, guest co-curator of the Constance Spry exhibition, will be hosting this demonstration and workshop on wired bouquets.

Inspired by Spry’s technique, this workshop will take you through the basics of wired floral arrangements from the hairpin method to the piercing method. You will have the opportunity to create a wired floral boutonniere to take home with you.
