THE CREATIVE PATH

Labyrinths have intrigued human populations for centuries, and Cerimon House introduces a large-scale floor labyrinth based on the historic Reims Cathedral pattern, with signature events & workshops for this working metaphor. Whereas mazes “amaze & confuse”, a labyrinth is a meditative path with a particular goal and an assured arrival point. Truly, the path is all.

We’ve created a 33 foot wide walking path that finds a home in our main auditorium on the Third Sunday of each month. 

THE CLOSELY KNIT PROJECT

An in-house project at Cerimon House, coordinated by our wonderful Bay Area-based colleague Jennifer Le Blanc, and supported by our Textile Tuesdays programming. Hand-knitted scarves & hats are created and collected...then handed-out, and/or left in civic spaces. Whose scarf is this? It’s yours, or yours to pass-on to someone in need. And it was lovingly hand-knitted for you by a crafty person. May it warm the cockles of your heart.
