Celebrate the wonder of soil by making your own miniature paper box garden with artist and plant explorer Jacques Nimki, and Workshops For The Imagination.

Explore the earth beneath our feet by creating your paper plant garden - complete with a clay soil rich in illustrated worms, microbes and bugs. Underground Overground is a family workshop created for the Great Exhibition Road Festival by Brighton-based art studio Workshops For The Imagination, and artist and plant explorer Jacques Nimki. Nimki's latest florilegium installation, from which this workshop takes inspiration, can be found outside the Royal Society of Sculptors on the Old Brompton Road.
