The Modern School of Flowers is inspired by Constance Spry. Spry began her floral design career in 1920s London, shocking the public with loose, wild arrangements in untraditional vessels that incorporated unexpected materials such as twigs, vegetable leaves, and wild grasses that anyone could find in the woods and their gardens. She opened the Modern School of Flower Work in 1935, with the idea that flowers were a source of beauty and healing that should be available to all. “I do feel strongly,” she once wrote, “that flowers should be a means of self-expression for everyone.”
