Hand Drawn Map Workshop

Come and learn the art of hand drawn maps with award winning illustrator Helen Cann.

Hand drawn maps are a beautiful alchemy of form, function and artistry which express a view of a particular place at a particular time by a particular person. At the workshop you’ll learn:

  • how to research your territory with notes and sketches
  • simple gridding up techniques
  • how to use negative space effectively with pattern, illustration or stories
  • how to create decorative compass roses and cartouches
  • how to design personalised feature icons and keys
  • easy to draw but simply elegant hand lettering

Helen Cann’s maps appear in print, books, film and tv.  She is the author and illustrator of Hand Drawn Maps – a guide for creatives (Thames and Hudson).

The workshop is for all creative abilities.  Please be aware that, weather dependent, there will be a short walk as part of the workshop. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear.
