Don’t miss our free StThomasWay Medieval Mapping Workshop – this Saturday 6th October 11am – 12:30am.

What is it?

A fun and active mapping workshop exploring our sense of space, led by Michelle around St Mary’s making ‘maps’ together as we go.

  • Learn how to draw a labyrinth
  • Hear about the journeys of Swansea’s Hanged Man in 1290
  • Discover how people in medieval times measured time and space
  • Find out just how long a league and a furlong are
  • See how far a medieval minute went
  • And where your own length in string will lead you…

Who it’s for…

If you like exploring, maps, stories from history, art, discoveries or just learning new things, then come along.
The workshop is open to all, though children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
No previous art or map experience is necessary! Just bring an open mind.

Holy Trinity Chapel

ThisĀ mapping workshop compliments the touring exhibition ‘Re-Making Maps of the Mind: Medieval and Modern Journeys, which is touring sites and galleries along the St Thomas Way through to October 2019. In St Mary’s beautiful Holy Trinity Chapel, it provides a mini-pilgrimage inviting visitors to consider how we make sense of where are from a different time and place.
