This is a short post to let you know that I’m running a short hand drawn map workshop at ONCA Gallery in Brighton alongside the exhibition ‘The Long View’ by somewhere-nowhere, a creative team comprising of Harriet Fraser and Rob Fraser, a writer and photographer respectively. For more than two years, somehwere-nowhere have been visiting seven trees in Cumbria – a hawthorn, a rowan, an alder, a Scot’s pine, a sycamore, a birch and a sessile oak and documenting their time with them. In the spirit of the exhibition, we will be mapping a brief walk taken around the gallery, observing the urban wildlife, people and buildings along the way.
8th June, 10am – noon
£15 – tickets via Eventbrite
For adults of all levels of artistic experience.
By the end of this 2 hour workshop you will have all the skills to make a basic hand drawn map!
Participants will learn how to:
Walk the turf and make observations
Grid up and draw out
Create basic but elegant hand lettering
Draw decorative compass roses to complete your map
Please bring a notepad (or equivalent), a pencil, a ruler and clothing appropriate for taking a short walk outside.
Then stay and enjoy The Long View exhibition in the gallery.
