Talks and Tea

Selected date

Wednesday March 15

Selected time

1:30 PM  –  2:30 PM

Enjoy a cup of tea and a sweet treat while you listen to a talk led by Director of Education, Lynn Norris, on Constance Spry: The Woman Who Made Flower Arranging an Art.  

Constance Spry was a social reformer, whose driving zeal for empowering women to find beauty in the world around them, took her from humble origins to a household name in Britan.  Using kale and weeds as design materials, she made gravy boats, bird cages, and baking sheets into plant containers. Royal weddings were her specialty, and with her friend, Syrie Maugham, she was an arbiter of mid-20th-century interior decoration. Today, she is the style icon on contemporary London blogs.
