  • Description

    Description

    My husband Bernd, a trained ceramic tile installer, and I, Nicole, immigrated from Germany to Nova Scotia 17 years ago. We live in Bridgewater and have two dogs, Bruno and Jacob, and a cat named Jack, the mouse ripper. Right after we moved here, we started a ceramic installation business which is very successful. A decade ago we also started to make functional art. This brought us to the idea to build an art maze made out of concrete, stone and plants. Last August we finally opened the maze to the public after 5 years of construction. But this is a never ending project. We already have started with the next project, a magical forest. We also always will add stuff to the maze. The maze is on our property outside of town. There we have our own private swimming pond/lake with a waterslide, diving board, party island and adjacent firepit and BBQ.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Although we ourselves are "come-from-aways" in Nova Scotia, you definitively will experience the laid back way of living in Atlantic Canada.
    We work mainly with concrete in all kinds of ways and metal and are willing to teach you whatever it takes. Together we will build aMAZEing things.

    We need helpers to add to the maze, help creating the enchanted forest and do manual labour. No skills required, just willingness to work along with us and have fun. An interest for art would be nice, but not necessary. There's lots of art work to be done, but also maintance around the work shop and prep work for the art projects.
    The project has started in April 2014 and was sort of finished last year. Opening day was August 30! The maze is completed, except of one mosaic mural still missing, but sculptures and landscaping still needs to be done for and in the enchanted forest which will be adjacent to the maze. Anyone with a green thumb is more than welcome!
    And by the way, we don't work outside on miserable days, therefore we have our workshop.
