How does growth happen in nature? What happens between a seed and an apple? Bottom to Top is a workshop focused on the subject of a tree as a living being and a living space. We go on a journey of exploration together with children and finish by feasting and celebrating nature and harvest. We move from the roots to the fruit, from one creative zone to another exploring life of a tree — where does it grow, what does it see around, how does it feed, how does it breathe, what does it feel, who are its friends. We learn about its inhabitants and the architecture of their houses. We experiment with colours and smells. We build a tree together — from the roots to the crown.
