A-maze-ing London!

London has had a difficult week, but the city was pulsing with vibrant energy when we took the train in to visit friends yesterday. With cameras in hand, we headed first to the Mirror Labyrinth in Victory Park to play with our reflections. Created within the boundaries of the Olympic Park in 2015, the Mirror [Read More]

Mirror Maze on the Midway

Remember the thrill of winding through a mirror maze when you were a child? This (old) picture looks so familiar to me; I remember going to the Napa Town and Country Fair with my family every year, and these mirror mazes were always set up somewhere along the midway. I guess it really dates me [Read More]

Threading the Maze

December is flying by, and we have been out and about, travelling to Spain and Italy to both broaden our research and deepen our connections with friends and fellow labyrinth enthusiasts. But despite being physically out in the world, I am feeling particularly quiet and pulled-in this year. 2016 has been a year of extremes [Read More]

Honouring the Artist

With all the focus on creative mazes in Saffron Walden last weekend, it seemed only right to make a small pilgrimage to nearby Hadstock to visit the grave of Michael Ayrton, a non-conformist 20th-century artist who lived in North Essex. A sculptor, painter, author, filmmaker, and maze designer, Ayrton’s life was changed forever when he visited Crete [Read More]

Minotaur Mania

Mazes and minotaurs go together; clearly you can’t have a Maze Festival without a fair few minotaurs showing up… So what do you do with them? Well, you could start by tossing rings onto the monster’s horns then have a go at whacking him down For a change of pace, you might want to try [Read More]
