Get Lost (in the Maze)

I have just come back from Banff, Scotland (my home town) where I made a maze from thousands of strands of yarn which was part of the Coast Festival in Banff castle grounds. It was quite a challenge, so I wanted to show you ‘the making of’ but in the end we created a 10 meter by 10 meter labyrinth!
I couldn’t have done it without all the help from local volunteers- including 6 firemen who put all the posts in, Matt, Leanne, Lynne, Paloma, Omar, Alice, Maureen, Maddie, Kate, and the 3 ladies from Aberdeenshire Council, who worked through the torrential rain while we were making it. I love the Scottish weather!
a long way to go!

We got there, after 11 hours of wrapping, cutting, twisting and raining!
 The best part was seeing people running around using it, and getting a bit lost in it… made it all worth while.
