Learn to draw and create Classical and Medieval labyrinths through a variety of simple and inexpensive methods. Explore the differences between spirals and meanders, mazes and labyrinths to discover the essential elements for adapting designs or creating one of your own!

Students will receive a workbook highlighting the history, classification, and methods for drawing traditional or one-of-a-kind labyrinths. Apply new skills in the creation of finger labyrinths, artistic projects, or plans for a large-scale installation. This is a great opportunity to learn about the diversity of designs and explore how and why certain patterns resonate with people.

Robert Ferré will share his expertise in adapting the Chartres design and creating tools and techniques for tape labyrinths for events. Participants will be invited to Ben Nicholson’s private studio for an evening artist’s talk and exhibition of his incredible series of hand-drawn designs.

Lars Howlett is a leading expert in the design and creation of sacred space for walking meditation, centering prayer, personal healing, conflict resolution and community building. Lars is a practitioner of mindfulness and student of sacred geometry since 2003, experimenting with a wide variety of designs, materials, intentions and settings in his personal and professional projects. Lars was a three year apprentice to Robert Ferre, inheriting the tools, techniques, and teaching curriculum of a master builder. Lars is a Veriditas Faculty Member and Certified Labyrinth Facilitator trained by the Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress at Grace and Chartres Cathedrals. Visit http://www.DiscoverLabyrinths.com

Robert Ferré was the first full-time labyrinth builder in the United States, beginning in 1995. He and his associates at Labyrinth Enterprises hand-built more than 1,000 labyrinths, both portable and permanent (plus temporary ones). He has written numerous books about labyrinth building as well as giving lectures and masterclasses. In the first training he gave for Veriditas, he met Lars Howlett, who served as Robert's apprentice before establishing his own place in the labyrinth world. Robert still makes the occasional labyrinth, enjoying retirement in San Antonio with his wife Linda Ricketts, working on writing projects and playing pickleball.
