RADICAL BOTANY


Join House of Hackney and a host of remarkable guests as we explore the rebellious legacy of radical gardeners, florists, and botanists, how they used their creativity in the face of adversity to make their own worlds and why they are so relevant today.

RADICAL BOTANY | PART 2 
Constance Spry

Wednesday 24th April

6:30pm - 8:30pm

House of Hackney St Michael’s

 

Join House of Hackney and Tatler Magazine’s style editor, Chandler Tregaskes, Financial Times’ House & Home editor Lucy Watson, floral alchymist Shane Connolly and guerilla gardener Ellen Miles in this panel discussion exploring the life and legacy of flower designer Constance Spry. Hailed as the first domestic goddess, socialite and florist Constance Spry was a hell of a lot more. With a personal life as wild as her avant-garde flower arrangements, Ms Spry was ahead of her time; following her own advice of, “Do what you please, follow your own star”, she certainly made a name for herself. Her pioneering floristry garnered the attention of high society and high fashion in the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s, and she remains an inspiration to many to this day.

CHANDLER TREGASKES

Chandler Tregaskes is Style Editor at Tatler Magazine. Focusing on luxury fashion and the people who wear it, the fabulous figures of high society are often prevalent in their work. Chandler covers a wide range of topics but is most elated when history and haute couture meet in perfect harmony, as they often do. Recently, Chandler took a deep dive into the wonderful world of Constance Spry as part of a Tatler fashion editorial inspired by the celebrated florist’s life - which sparked a floral-clad fascination with Spry for the journalist. 

SHANE CONNOLLY

Shane is a renowned floral designer and ambassador for sustainable floristry. His clients range from great public institutions like The V&A; the RA and the National Portrait Gallery, to a veritable who's who of the great and the good of British life. He is perhaps best known for his public work for The Royal Family, including the recent Royal Coronation. 

Shane has approached all these iconic moments with the same respect for nature, season
and setting and always with the aim to leave the smallest footprint behind and be led by what is local and available. Shane works with the RHS to improve sustainability in floristry in their annual shows, and is also a judge at RHS Chelsea. He has written five books and teaches his approach to flower design all over the world, with its roots and ethos firmly in sustainability.
