Labyrinth – Dover 2009

The Labyrinth ( Greek – labyrinthos ) of Greek mythology was designed as a structure to imprison the Minotaur, while prehistoric labyrinths were believed to have functioned as traps for malevolent spirits. Labyrinths are uni-cursal pathways leading to a centre, then back out again, and can also act as symbolic forms of pilgrimage, where people can walk the path, ascending toward salvation or enlightenment. A maze is constructed using dead-ends and false paths, but a labyrinth has only one path leading to the centre and back.

Each time a person walks the labyrinth, it is an individual and personal experience. The 180 degree turns, that are an integral part of the path through the labyrinth, are thought to alternate awareness between the left and right sides of the brain, inducing receptive states of consciousness. The time spent at the centre of each labyrinth can be a reflective and meditative experience, or a means of exploring personal inner space.

A map showing our location is included within the catalogue.

Seas Open Studios 2009

Open Studios is being run concurrently with the Deal Music Festival and takes place over the first three weekends in July, during the Deal Festival of Music and Arts, a major local cultural event. Artists and craftmakers from, Deal, Eastry, Ringwould, Worth and Walmer invite the public into their studios to meet the artists, look at their work and talk about art. Most items will be for sale and commissions can be negotiated.

This year we have hired Ringwould Village Hall for the 2nd and 3rd weekends for those artists who, for a variety of reasons, can’t open their studio.

The artists who organise Open Studios all operate in an unpaid and voluntary capacity. The guide book to accompany the event, listing the artists taking part, with easy to follow maps and directions, will be available from many local outlets including library, tourist information centres.
