Al-Idrisi was a explorer and map maker born in Morocco in 1100AD who left his home aged 16 to explore the world. The maps he created are some of the earliest conceptions of the earth being round.

In this workshop we will explore how Al-Idrisi made his maps, and have a go at creating some of our own using a range of techniques such as print making.

Jessica El Mal is a writer, artist and curator based between Marrakech, Manchester and London. Her work often explores the concept of borders, ecology and migration.
