Live globe making demonstration at The Map House with Loraine Rutt

The Map House is excited to announce a unique opportunity to see a demonstration of globe making by artist and globe maker Loraine Rutt of The Little Globe Co. on Wednesday 5th December at 54 Beauchamp Place.

Loraine Rutt, a trained cartographer, has been making maps from clay for over 25 years. The Little Globe Co grew from an idea to recreate the pocket globes of the 18th and 19th Century for the modern collector. These tiny globes were beautiful, highly detailed miniature worlds that could be held in one hand.

Focusing on the intricate details, Loraine has developed a range of exquisite porcelain globes at a scale of 1:170,000,000 and in combination with hand crafted, locally-sourced wooden cases.

Join us at The Map House from 6pm – 8pm on Wednesday 5th December for a glimpse into the delicate process behind her miniature porcelain globes, and enjoy a complimentary cocktail with us. In collaboration with the Beauchamp Place Christmas Party & late night shopping on the street.
