FANTASY CARTOGRAPHY based on Medieval Maps :: Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th March 2019



*COURSE FULL – Click here to join waiting list*

With Jim Stanes

Create journey maps and fantasy cartography based on Medieval maps using the Middle Ages as our inspiration. Maps in those days were not so much geographical but as a means of showing a particular journey, for example how to get from A to B.

For our maps I would like you to think of a memorable journey; this could be from your house to the nearest town, or something more adventurous, such as a trip to the far reaches of this island of Britain.

We do not have to be literal or exact. Important things are made big and less important things become smaller. Our map may not be immediately recognisable, but it will be completely understandable.

Jim is well known for his beautiful cartography, art and design work in the film industry.

£145 (Plus approx. £10 materials)



Other useful details ...

Courses run 10am – 4pm, we will be glad to welcome you for coffee from 9.45am.

A selection of teas, coffee and soft drinks are inclusive and served throughout the day.

Lunch is served as a ‘bring and share’ sit down buffet, please bring a small plate of food to share, or lunch can be provided by pre-booking at a cost of £5.

Each course has a detailed requirements list so you know if there is anything in particular you will need to bring or wear. We try and keep this minimal and supply most of what you need, but we know that people also like to bring thier own ‘kit’ if they have it. Please ensure you read your list carefully and do ask if there is anything that isnt clear!

We also offer 4* B&B accommodation please enquire or see our course accommodation page full details – it is worth noting that during course times we only have attendees staying here so our accommodation is not available through the usual online system.

Printable directions and Google Map links to help you find The Old Kennels can be found here (sat nav will not bring you to the door as being rural the postcode area is quite large).
