A-mazing

18 April 2012 by Alison

This Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 April at World Museum you can build a Labyrinth.

For those born in the 80s you may get excited and think that David Bowie will show up with a host of Jim Henson puppets. Unfortunately this isn’t the case but what you can do is far more exciting.

From 11am – 4pm you can join in the Labyrinth event and, alongside staff and students from John Moores University, build a labyrinth in the museum. In Greek Mythology a labyrinth was to hold the Minotaur, a mythical creature that was half man and half bull. Luckily there won’t be a real mythical monster at the centre of the labyrinth you build.

Later that day between 1-4pm there is a ‘Minotaur mazes and masks’ workshop. Here you can find out the difference between a maze and a labyrinth (who knew there was one!) and make a Minotaur mask to take home.

Tiger? Pah! Your Minotaur mask will be much scarier!
