Events & Workshops

Forthcoming events are presented on this page, along with booking information (where necessary). Further down, you’ll find links to details and a photo gallery of prior events. If you are interested in holding a labyrinth event or workshop for your own organisation, group or community, please get in touch to discuss what might work for you.

I aim to hold all public events in wheelchair accessible venues, and provide table-top (finger) labyrinths and other alternative resources. If you would like to discuss any accessibility issue in relation to a labyrinth experience, just let me know.

A Quiet Day with the Labyrinth - July 13, 2019

Royal Foundation of St. Katharine’s, Limehouse, London

A Labyrinth is not a maze. With no dead ends, its single path to the centre invites us to explore – a pilgrim path, a path of prayer or contemplation, a path that draws us into the present moment.

This day offers a peaceful labyrinth walk and time to reflect on the experience. Take time in St Katharine’s extraordinary urban oasis,  a chance to step aside from the City but not leave it. Visit https://rfsk.org.uk for more details.

Labyrinths in Britain Regional Event:
Walking Tour of London Labyrinths - July 27, 2019

A Gathering with a difference for 2019: a winding pilgrimage on foot and by London Underground, led by Jan Sellers. Visit a very varied collection of London’s labyrinths, including specially arranged access for our group. We will start with the smallest and oldest labyrinth - on paper - and end up walking a glorious 21st century art installation. £25, bring packed lunch. Details and registration on the Labyrinths in Britain website.

Drawing a Labyrinth - Residential Course, August 2 to 4, 2019

Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, Birmingham

Labyrinths are creative resources for spiritual practice, and offer space for prayer, play and discovery. Starting with paper and pencil, we'll create labyrinth patterns from around the world, from simple to more complex designs. We'll make labyrinths small enough for postcards - and big enough to walk, using natural and temporary materials. By the end of the course, everyone will know how to create a temporary labyrinth indoors or outdoors. Visit the Woodbrooke website for more details.
