A North Carolina indoor labyrinth rental

Labyrinth rental

This labyrinth is located in Burlington, North Carolina. We are listed on the Labyrinth Locator site.

It can be rented to church groups of all kinds.

Our labyrinth is an indoor canvas, painted labyrinth in the Chartres Cathedral design (11 circuits). The dimensions are 32’ x 32’. When folded, it rolls on a small cart. It is pretty heavy to carry up or down stairs unless you have a couple of strong men.

You need an open space of more than 32’ x 32’ with no columns or poles in the way to open this labyrinth. At least 3 people are needed to open and close the labyrinth.

It can be rented for one day or longer, as your needs dictate.

Arrange pick up/delivery with us by phone--  Kathy at 336-269-1006 or by email at kathybarrync@gmail.com.
                                                                  or Laurie at 336-213-6770 or by email at lareddi@me.com

We have some wonderful accessories to go with a rental, if you need them.

Rules

How we made it

With a kit from Veriditas in California, we proceeded to order 8 foot wide canvas and decided how we could best make it without long seams of velcro. Then we created about three patterns/tools for three different parts of the labyrinth. After we joined 4 long strips of the 8’ canvas, we sketched out the basics according to our kit and by using our patterns and tools, on the 32’ x 32’ canvas, then we painted it. We were very fortunate that our church had two large places where we could work on such a large canvas. We are grateful for the many hands we had to help us paint it.

Here are some pictures as we made the labyrinth

Folding Instructions

Work on one side of the labyrinth at a time.

  1. With 3 or more people, bring outside edge of one side to the center. Use the folds already established—it will be about 3 to 6 inches away from the center of labyrinth.
  2. Take the outer fold and bring it to the center of the labyrinth.
  3. Then take the next fold to the center.
  4. Repeat.

Now go over to the other side of the labyrinth.

Use steps 1 through 4.

Now you have 2 narrow folds next to each other.

  1. Flip one long side over on top of the other side.
  2. Which one? The side with writing on the bottom should stay on the bottom. You will see the writing if you flip the wrong side over.

Now you have one long narrow fold.

    1. Starting at one end, bring that to about one foot near the center of the strip. Again, use the previously established folds if you can.
    2. Return to the fold created by step one.
    3. Bring that fold 1/3 of the way to the center.
    4. Do that again and again.
    5. Now go to the other end of the labyrinth.
    6. Repeat steps 1 to 5.
    7. Finally, fold one side on top the other.

Place in center of green canvas covering and fold that up around the labyrinth.
