This is an optional third day to add to the Learn to Make Labyrinths Workshop.

This workshop will step things up to a higher level of technical requirements, skills, and business considerations, including detailed instructions for making a portable canvas labyrinth. Everyone who attends this conference should leave with the ability to make a temporary labyrinth in less than an hour as well as building or instructing workers in the creation of permanent labyrinths. This master class is given only once a year and space is limited.

About the Presenters

Robert Ferre worked for 17 years as a full-time labyrinth maker. He invented many of the tools and techniques currently used today. He has been involved in all aspects of labyrinths, including research, writing, editing, training, lecturing, and building. He has served as builder or consultant for major labyrinths in the United States and abroad.

Lars Howlett is a holistic and intuitive labyrinth builder who specializes in creating site-specific labyrinths using natural materials. He designs, builds, and walks labyrinths as a practice in mindfulness, setting intention, and connecting with the present moment. Past projects include a 'literal labyrinth’ of used books for the SF Poetry Festival, a labyrinth of shoes on the theme of immigration, and a labyrinth of coconuts in Puerto Rico. He is the apprentice to master builder Robert Ferré and a Veriditas Certified Labyrinth Facilitator. Lars leads workshops and meditative walks in the SF Bay Area and beyond.
