Zentangle® 3-day Workshops
This 3-day Zentangle class is exciting (well, yes, I know... Zentangle is supposed to be relaxing...). Well whatever, you’ll experience a variety of techniques for Zentangle and we’ll have a fun time. You might know that I am a bit addicted to Zentangle (I think it is an OK addiction). Everything that sits still has been tangled by me - paper, pottery, gourds, quilts, paintings, seashells, my shoes, purse, t-shirt, and more. I’ve also seen other people tangle on cakes, cupcakes, glass and ceramics. The list of creative possibilities is endless.
The class is planned so we can learn a lot of tangles (almost 50 tangles) and experiment with a variety of mixed media - sort of an ‘all-inclusive’ ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) adventure. We’ll work with different materials and tools, and we’ll draw on a variety of surfaces (paper, fabric, metal and gourds).
Many of our supplies are only available online. To make it easy for you, I plan to bring all the materials that each person will need - official Zentangle ‘tiles’, 3 black Sakura MICRON pens, journal for your tiles and notes, metal rim tags, canvas bag, stickers, embossing metal and small gourds. I’ll also bring supplies for you to borrow - templates, white pen, black Pentel gel roller for fabric, rubber stamps, punches, watercolor pencils, Tombow pens, tools, brushes and Gesso.
I’ll hand out worksheets so you can keep track of how you draw each tangle pattern. Each day will be packed and we’ll start promptly at 9:00 so try to be a bit early.
Day 1 will be filled with the basics
Day 2 will involve adding more color
