An exhibition of works created by Waterloo social enterprise Southbank Mosaics can be seen in a pop-up garden outside barristers' chambers in Lincoln's Inn Fields.

The exhibition includes five pieces designed by William Blake – and an 1807 portrait of Blake – that will in May 2011 be installed in a railway tunnel at Virgil Street close to Archbishop's Park in North Lambeth.

Virgil Street runs parallel to Centaur Street which is already decorated with Blake mosaics. Blake lived in nearby Hercules Buildings from 1790 to 1800.

The exhibition at Garden Court Chambers also includes six abstract works created by young offenders working at Southbank Mosaics which are for sale at prices ranging from 200 to 1200.

• Visit the pop-up garden on weekdays until mid-September at Garden Court
