Friends on our Path

For the past several years we have been working on a project with our friend Els van Lierop from the Netherlands. Like so many of us, she has followed numerous paths over the course of her lifetime, and before we met her on the labyrinth, she was a leader in developing the Alaskan Husky breed [Read More]

A Scilly Adventure – Part 3

Our last full day dawned bright and clear, and the wind had calmed considerably. We had hoped to make the trip to Bryher, but sailing times made visiting St Martin’s a more viable option for us.

As you can see, the significance of a maze was clearly understood, and we love the subtle connection to [Read More]

Our house (which we lovingly refer to as Labyrinthos HQ) is home to an amazing assortment of mazes, labyrinths and related ephemera that have been collected from round the world over the past 40 years or so. This beautiful locking writing box was probably made in Scotland early in the 1800’s, by a French prisoner of war, [Read More]
