This session is inspired by The Old Ways by Robert Macfarlane from our ‘Walking the Earth’ bookshelf, a wonderful book that links paths to stories and heritage.
Since the start of Covid-19 we have been inviting people to create a page about their pandemic experiences for our Commonplace Book, a community scrapbook documenting this unique time. In this session you will have the opportunity to add to our Commonplace Book by making map collages of the paths you made during Covid-19, wherever they might have been. Perhaps you will plot your favourite route in the park, or your regular circuit round your garden...
Our Make sessions are self-led activities and no previous experience is required, however, we recommend that this activity is suitable for older children and adults. Your activity will take place in one of our Reading Rooms in the Mansion House and up to six people can attend. The Reader will provide all the instructions and materials needed.
