Mind the Map workshop

 I ran my first proper workshop as part of the museum at night event at the London Transport museum.  It was great fun.  There were lots of keen people wanting to take part, there was even a queue at one point.

I had some templates of my birds for people to use or they could go free style.  It was great to see how people took to it and made their pieces their own. Some people used my templates as a starting point and some people created their own thing.  it was really fun and I hope I’ve inspired some people to take up paper cutting.

me ready for action!
