Come venture into the woods in a special fantastical map making workshop. Using folk tales as inspiration, learn the skills and techniques of narrative map making. Learn to explore your own worlds with ink and pen. Join illustrator Kathleen Jennings who has created maps for books such as Holly Black's The Cruel Prince and Christopher Rowe's The Wicked King and Telling the Map. Map and story lovers from all walks of life are welcome, but you will need the minimum penmanship of a 10-year-old. Ages 10 to Merlin
