An introduction to making hand drawn artist maps covering: the decorative art of the compass rose and cartouche; basic lettering skills; gridding up and different ways to use negative space; and how to create a map key. You will go for a walk out around the village with Helen to orientate yourself and pick out interesting features to include in your map. By the end of the session, you should be able to create your own personalised map of Ditchling.
