Art and craft of labyrinth

X

Description

Learn the art of labyrinth design and construction. Construct a collection of 'new' and 'old' labyrinths including the classical seven circuits 'Cretan' and eleven-circuit Medieval labyrinth using compasses and straight-edge. Develop an understanding and appreciation of labyrinth forms - ancient and modern - from around the world: how, why, and for whom are they made? What is their significance and symbolism and why the contemporary resurgence of interest in labyrinths? Create embossed finger labyrinths and prints and gilded labyrinths in copper, silver and gold! Taught by Daniel Docherty - Sacred Art of Geometry Studios co-founded and senior tutor. SAOG Studios offers regular short courses at Emerson College, Forest Row, UK, and occasional study trips and workshops further afield.
