Summer School 2012 The Mycenean Road

Sandra K. has just finished her piece of work started at Summer School with Janet Browne. It depicts a map of her walk into Mycenae in Greece along the the ancient Mycenean Road.

Sandra hand dyed her own material to get the special colours she remembered of Greece. The map starts at the coast in the harbour at Naplion and then meanders through the Greek countryside alive with flowers, olive and orange trees, passing the ancient citadel of Tyryns and into the mountains where Mycenae is situated.
Sandra said that Janet taught them lots of new techniques and her maps and birds were inspirational.
