Wellesley, MA

Village Church was under going extensive rebuilding, renovation and addition. The chapel was changed with regards to windows, doors, and decor. Before the floor was varnished, I drew a Petite Chartres design in felt marker.

Volunteers then taped the lines and gave them two coats of paint. Then, ultimately, the floor was varnished. The result is so striking that everyone is pleased how it came out. It just goes to show that a labyrinth project doesn't have to bust the budget.

Kathy Musser, one of the ministers at this church, is also part of the Labyrinth Guild of New England, for whom I organized a week's program in Chartres in 2003. One of my greatest pleasures as a labyrinth maker is to travel and visit such beautiful places and meet such interesting people. Wellesley is a beautiful town, fitting the image of what you would expect to see in New England.
