Challenge (Encyclopedia): VOLUME C: CARTOGRAPHY
People have been studying relative positions in geographical space for millennia. From wall paintings to global satellite networks, maps have expanded in scope and technological sophistication, but they remain a way to make sense of and gather knowledge about the physical world around us.
Craft an item inspired by maps.
Spinning and Knitting
Whenever I travel I always have 2 things close by, a map and my coffee. My favorite travel mug is not insulated so when I put in hot coffee it burns my hands. I won't stop using it because it's the only one i own that won't leak even if it's upside down in my knitting bag. It’s time to join the two into a useful and exciting cozy. I want a cozy that looks like a map. No. I want a cozy that IS A MAP!
I started with an Aeronautical Chart of my home state Kansas. I liked the heavy waxy paper. I like that I know all the roads and towns as I start to cut.
Cut it into one long strip. Helper is not helpful.
Team tie in:
Mal is carrying a huge bouquet of the Kansas state flower, the Sunflower. It’s perfect as part of my identity to this place and map.
