Maps say as much about the person who made them as about the world they describe! Starting with simple structures for making foldout artist’s books, you will use drawing as the basis to explore experimental mark-making to create visual ‘maps’ of your inner and outer landscapes. Working with paper, you will develop mapping skills; looking at poetry, calligraphy, cartography and symbols as you define your personal geography. At the end of the course, participants will take away at least one innovative book, telling the story of a journey in its folds.
