How to Draw the Simplified Heart of Chartres Labyrinth

Brand new method! No graph paper or compass required!

  Enroll in Course

Create a precise 5-Circuit medieval labyrinth without a compass or graph paper! Veriditas faculty member Lars Howlett demonstrates how to draw a Heart of Chartres design with household objects. Learn the basic elements of a medieval pattern through a simple, creative exercise that you can follow at your own pace (pause and rewind at will!) in this half hour webinar. Let your creativity flow and use the finished drawing for meditative finger labyrinth walks, art projects, or practice for a full-size walkable installation! This new and original technique can also be applied to drawing Classical labyrinths and other designs.

(Please note that you can also use a mechanical compass and/or graph paper to create the labyrinth as demonstrated in the second half of the video. The center rosette and lunations are not covered in this basic tutorial, but will be presented in an expanded online course coming later this Spring).
