Many Hands…


Designing, drawing, and painting a canvas labyrinth is a big job. While it can be done singlehandedly, a community effort can offer a multitude of benefits, from the teaching of new skills to the deepening of friendships — not to mention being able to finish the job more quickly! The new canvas labyrinth for Woodbrooke has been a long time in the planning, from room-measuring to paint choosing and canvas-ordering, but finally a group of willing workers assembled in Bourneville for a long weekend of labyrinth-making under the direction of Jan Sellers and Jeff Saward.

With love, from all of us
