Field trip alongside canal with Illustration students

After the group of illustration students had hand-made their own drawing books and decided on their own individual ways of recording their surroundings using a range of illustration process, the students came on a day trip to walk from Spaghetti Junction to the new library at Centenary Square in Birmingham. While walking alongside Birmingham and Fazeley Canal the students did not only stop at various points of their journey to record their urban surroundings, but they also had the opportunity to find out more about the vital role that the canal system had played in Birmingham's industrial past. Each student's outcome is one of the many stories that will be told over the course of the next year as part of Outline's initiative called City of 1000 stories.
