The felt art project responded to the William Smith map exhibition at Bowlees Visitor Centre. ‘The Map that Changed the World’ was the first large scale geological map in the world, and was produced in 1815.
This exhibition shows how the children responded to the Smith map, other geological maps and the Upper Teesdale landscape. A number of workshops for adults were also held, and some of their work can be seen alongside the children’s map squares.
The project was supported by National Lottery players through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
