Make your own work of art with Greengage Arts, using a wide range of tactile and fun materials from the Gardens. Taking Laura Aldridge’s printed floor in Plant Scenery of the World as inspiration, experiment with nature printing and take your artwork home.

This event is running alongside Plant Scenery of the World, an exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Botanics' iconic modernist glasshouses, the 'Front Range', opened in 1967 to house plants collected in tropical regions by British explorers. The exhibition presents new, commissioned and existing work by Laura Aldridge, Charlie Billingham, Bobby Niven, Oliver Osborne and Ben Rivers alongside rare and unseen archival material, botanical paintings by Isik Güner, Jacqui Pestell and Sharon Tingey and historical paintings by R.K. Greville from the Garden’s own collection.
