‘You are here’ – mapping a sense of place.

A workshop that investigates the potential of images, materials and ideas to evoke a quality or sense of place.

Beginning with a number of approaches to drawing that use a variety of media, tools and scale, we will be exploring ways in which to respond to the surrounding environment. This exciting collection of drawn work will then form the starting point for new and unexpected material responses both two and three dimensional, that reflects a strong sense of personal and environmental place.
