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. It used to be one day, then two days, and finally three days.
Here (above photo) the class is making a small Chartres Labyrinth in masking tape on the floor (photo by Lars Howlett -- see www.findlars.com). 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, www.veriditas.org.
We are fully in business but we don't update this website.
Labyrinth Enterprises, LLC, is a collaborative of skilled labyrinth artists prepared to install the best labyrinth for your site and budget. Robert Ferré, now retired after 20 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. The work is then assigned to the appropriate artists within the collaborative, who complete the installation. Robert still does two or three jobs a year personally.
Labyrinth Enterprises, LLC, is the publisher of books written by Robert Ferré and Linda Ricketts. All current titles are available on amazon.com.
Since this is a long established business (1995), it was easiest to use this vehicle for our soon to be thriving eBay sales efforts. Robert will be selling his extensive antique tool collection plus 2,000 collectable yardsticks. And what the heck, we'll throw in a few books and other items of interest. Robert's seller name is "measurethis." For direct inquiries, contact:

There may be mentions of newsletters or updates, lists of prices, descriptions of products, and so forth. These are not likely to be up to date or accurate. We no longer continue to post additional examples of our work, although we continue to make labyrinths.
WE ARE STILL FULLY OPERATIONAL AND IN BUSINESS.
Robert's time is limited, and so his work as webmaster and any activity on social media are minimal. The only one of Robert's websites which will continue to be updated (in lieu of any other sites, including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+, all of which are inactive) is his personal website: www.robertferre.com. Robert is available by email to consult or to answer questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. Soon there will be information about the workshop available at www.agingasaspiritualjourney.com. For a schedule of future presentations, or if your church or organization would like to sponsor an event, please contact Robert at the above address.

While working on the five books slated for reissuing, Robert saw the need for a sixth book, which is now available on Amazon.com: Canvas Labyrinths: Construction Manual. It seems that more people are likely to make a portable labyrinth than a very involved permanent one.
