Led by Tom Woolley, artist, illustrator and mapmaker (

Are you interested in the history and heritage of place? Do you use maps in your research or practice? Artist Tom Woolley creates maps for heritage sites, visitor attractions, towns and cities. His work includes maps for Sherwood Forest, Leeds Industrial Museum, the City of Birmingham, the St Thomas Way and Bolton Abbey, as well as independent projects such as ‘Myths & Legends of the British Isles’. In this workshop, Tom will share and reflect on his practice, then lead a hands-on map-making workshop. How could creative mapping help you to think in fresh ways about your place-based research? How could creative maps form an interpretation or public engagement tool? 

Come and have a go – no artistic experience or talent necessary!
