Mapping Amsterdam

Mapping Amsterdam

On June 14th Claudi Kessels and I gave a workshop on how to make a map. It was our first time we gave our workshop at the inspiring Atelier Oosterbosch. This meant we could start of right in the centre of Amsterdam and take a nice walk to the Bickerseiland. The lovely old Amsterdam Warehouses, the water, and the flowers in full bloom made it a really beautiful starting Point.
Taking back all our reference materials we started with making maps back at the atelier. One of our participants, Herma Starreveld, made a really nice ‘making of’ blogpost about it, including a little movie showing her map!
