How to Create a Labyrinth

Check out this site by the Labyrinth society. It shows how to draw the classic Cretan labyrinth that we drew in class today that has 7 circles. It also shows how to do a 3 and 15 circle labyrinth. Cool.

You may also be interested in looking at some of the other pages, such as what is a labyrinth? and the types of labyrinths. (Click on the right side bar to go to the different types.) You can also see some of the beautiful creations from my friend Alex Champion, including the Cretan labyrinth and Flowerwand that I walked this past weekend.

The picture below shows the Peace Labyrinth that my friends and I built in my backyard.

    I absolutely love your Labyrinth! I am trying to get ideas to make my own in my backyard. If you have any ideas on stones, gravel or sand, etc. please feel free to pass them on.

    I have created quite a few labyrinth outdoors. The latest is what I call the 5min sand labyrinth. Why wait for someone to build one or for an organization to do a public labyrinth.

    Anytime I want to do a walk I go out to the park; if my labyrinth is washed out I recreate it in 5 minutes and it is all back.

    Hi, your labyrinth is beautiful. Can you tell me the dimensions of it and how big your back yard is? Thanks.

    I am asking permission to use the Peace Labyrinth graphic that you posted on March 6, 2007 “How to Create a Labyrinth” for an article that I am writing with Dr. Barbara Michels and Ching-Wen Chang (Missouri State University) on “Labyrinths, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow – Implications for Education” to be published by the Academy for Educational Studies.
    Please respond.
