With the coming of Fall we all notice the changes all around us : cooling temperatures, later sunrises and sooner sunsets, changing colors, birds gathering for migration, gardens browning, crops getting ready for a final harvest. Do we experience changes within ourselves as we enter a new season? How do we prepare ourselves for these changes?  Enjoy these changes?  Cope with changes in our lives. This labyrinth experience is for those 18+.
Our labyrinth is located on Wengert Road, at the second drive to the right. Please wear comfortable shoes. Everyone is welcome! No previous meditation experience or experience walking labyrinths is required. Registration, which is required, closes three business days prior to the program or when capacity is reached. Please register by calling (614) 866-4302 or by using the form found here.

Registration closes 3 business days prior to program. Register by July 4th. All programs have a minimum of 5 participants.

Facilitated by Miranda Land
Suggested Donation: $5

WAITLIST AVAILABLE: Felting Class: Woolscapes
Felting Program: Woolscapes Class
Saturday, August 27th 1:30-3:30 pm

$20 program fee *7 participant maximum*

Learn how to work with dry wool to create needle-felted landscapes that represent the natural world. Using a single felting needle and a multi-needle tool, you can paint color with natural and dyed fibers just as you would with a paint brush. Your finished impressionist or abstract wool landscape will be 5” x 7” in size and can be framed for hanging.

Gail Maraman became interested in wool and felt making when she began caring for a small flock of sheep at Windy Crest Farm in Granville, Ohio. Using the wool from her own sheep, she learned how to design and create many different types of felt: traditional, watercolor, needle, and Nuno. Today, her finished felt pieces include wearable art accessories and items for home décor.
