Story Telling Word Maps with Chrissie Nicholls

October 22 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

In this workshop you will discover the joy of making a map based on your own story.
Bring a memory with you; of a holiday, an adventure, a dream, or just the things you think about as you go for a favourite walk or meander around your garden.
Telling your story in words we’ll explore different ways to design a map including various cartographic notations and discuss using different lettering styles and sizes.
You’ll be led through your map making from start to finish, with group discussions about techniques and ideas. No lettering experience is required, there will be guidance for those who may not be confident with their own abilities.
At the end of your workshop you’ll have created a unique piece of art to take away and use as a reminder for your hopes and dreams to come or a wonderful memory of a time gone by.
