Installing Labyrinths

Working with volunteers is very cost effective. Pictured is an installation in Charlottesville, Virginia.The adults take a break in order to rest up, but this young lady, who was a good worker, took breaks in order to run and play.

Labyrinth Master Class

Each year Robert used to give a master class, along with his colleague Lars Howlett, in how to build labyrinths.

Here (above photo) the class is making a small Chartres Labyrinth in masking tape on the floor (photo by Lars Howlett -- see We also made labyrinths using beans, bottle caps, and engineer's tape. Robert is now retired from this endeavor, but Lars continues the tradition. For the dates and place of the next labyrinth summer school, please contact Veriditas through their website, or go to Lars Howlett's website at

Above: While working on the five books slated for reissuing, Robert saw the need for a sixth book, about canvas labyrinths. It seems that more people are likely to make a portable labyrinth than a very involved permanent one. We have also added a new section here about the history and care of canvas labyrinths. See it here: Canvas Labyrinths. Also see this page about our canvas labyrinth studio.

We are still fully in business



Labyrinth Enterprises, LLC, is a collaborative of skilled labyrinth artists prepared to install the best labyrinth for your site and budget. Robert Ferré, now mostly retired after 23 years as a full-time labyrinth maker, still acts as technical advisor and contact person. By communicating with the architect, client, or committee in charge, Robert helps to determine the best pattern and medium within the specified budget. Then he recommends an artist within the collaborative who is qualified to complete the installation. Robert still does two or three jobs a year personally, as well as offering consulting and design services.


Labyrinth Enterprises, LLC, is the publisher of books written by Robert Ferré and Linda Ricketts. All current titles are available on

Proton Beam Therapy

Protons are a particle from the nucleus of an atom. A new and superior technology uses protons to treat numerous forms of cancer. In September and October of 2016 Robert received proton therapy treatment for intermediate prostate cancer, which is not invasive and is painless. So impressed was he that he has taken a new interest in promoting proton therapy. Accordingly, he has the book shown to the right, and also these three new websites:
Website dedicated to the new book.
Proton therapy blog.

Aging Workshop

Robert Ferré and Linda Ricketts offer a workshop entitled AGING AS A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY in which the labyrinth is used as both metaphor and spiritual tool. Growing older is not a tragedy to be avoided at all costs. It can be the most exciting and rewarding time of our life. There is basic information about the workshop available at For a schedule of future presentations, or if your church or organization would like to sponsor an event, please contact Robert.


Reviews are the life blood of an autor these days. People check reviews before buying a book. Would you buy a book with only one or two reviews? All of Robert's books are self-published through CreateSpace and POD (print on demand). That part is relatively easy. The marketing is the real bugaboo. Please help by writing reviews and sharing information about these books with others. Many thanks.
