What’s it all about?

Do you get lost on purpose or by accident? Do you blindly follow the guides (printed or human) just because you have no other option? Can you plan or trace your way? Do you find maps just pretty or useful?

In this class you can learn how to read maps in all weather conditions, plan your own way and navigate in style!

What will we cover?

We will get to grips with:

  • Basic history of cartography: where did maps came from?
  • What is on every (good!) map?
  • The two most common types of maps and how to read them.
  • How to plan your way and navigate better than the latest device.

And if there’s time we’ll take a look at making your own footprint on your journey.

Who will be teaching?

KatkaKaterina Pavkova has been fascinated by maps all her life, and it’s unlikely it will ever change. Her dedication to colourful charts led her to get a degree in Cartography and implement mapping in all areas of her life, literally! She will guide you to find your own way to become a map reading and navigation pro!
