Maps have been found inscribed on  clay tablets, on the the walls of caves, mapping routes over land, sea and the sky above.

This workshop will explore the world of Maps as used by artists such as Mona Hatoum, a Lebanese artist who found herself unable to return to the Lebanon and who created a series of work called “Routes for the rootless” and the ceramicist and Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry, who created ‘Map for an Englishman,’  to say something about the Englishman’s identity. He used 16th/17th  century cartographers etching techniques to give authenticity to his  humorous and satirical work.

The area around Cockenzie House has many maps describing routes along the coast, the history of the area and where we are in relation to the landscape. We will use Maps, atlases and other source material to draw upon and ask questions as to how we might interact with them. You will be encouraged to think, research and be creative in the work you do and the materials you use.
