About the project

The map project was conceived by Istra Toner, glass artist and painter, together with groups of artists from several different countries. The project is a response to our desire to describe visually our experience of the place we call our home. The challenge was to create collaborative maps using textiles as the material of choice. The first exhibition of the project was in Spring 2014; the maps have since travelled to participating partner countries.

The Map Project in Scotland

15th August – 7th September 2015 

The Skerray group organised exhibitions at two locations at the very top of Scotland.

At Skerray community centre the maps were seen and much appreciated by the community of 67.

At Lybster community centre the project was shown during the 19th International Glass conference and was very well received by more than 80 conference participants. Both events attracted much interest in the project, particularly in the underpinning stories and symbolism in each of the maps.
