Description: 

Do you dream of building a temporary or permanent labyrinth for yourself or your community? In this two-day experiential workshop, Lars Howlett will lead you in the creation of walkable Classical, Chartres, and modified Contemporary Labyrinths. Techniques for efficient and accurate installation will be demonstrated including many tools invented by Robert Ferré. See first-hand how intention, design, proportions, materials, site, and alignment benefit the labyrinth and those who walk it.

Stories and slideshows will explore the best options for a variety of communities and settings, from schools to festivals, churches to hospitals, backyards to public parks and more. Learn how to appropriately alter proportions, paths, circuits, and the center to fit a variety of environments. See photos from Lars’ professional projects and pilgrimages to sacred sites around the world including Chartres, Iona, and Sweden. The cost and qualities of dozens of different materials will be discussed, from tape to canvas, rubber mulch to grass, pavers to stone and more. Receive feedback on your own designs and projects and take the next step in realizing your dream labyrinth!
