One of the things that I enjoy about teaching, is that I sometimes learn a lot myself. The illustrative map-making workshop is one of those.
This 2nd map-making workshop took place at the new Brooklyn Brainery location in Windsor Terrace. In this lovely small space we worked on a variety of different maps. Two students combined their love for food with map-maping, creating a map placing iconic British dishes geographically on the map and another guiding you through all the things you should eat when visiting Singapore.
Other maps were incredible as well; mapping a wardrobe, the world map through the eyes of a cat or mapping friendships and relations. Another student put the local ‘characters’ from her neighborhood on the map of Prospect Park area. Loved it!
