Expressions with maps
The workshop will offer different techniques to transfer map motives onto textile and paper and to create open, diaphanous works using water solvable film. Participants will create samples of each technique using their own maps or the provided ones. Some of the samples will be assembled to create layered collages to express associations and feelings about the living environment. Using map as a metaphor will be widely discussed during the process.
