My last two posts have been on the Zentangle® workshop I attended last weekend with Martha Huggins and Molly Hollibaugh leading. All in all, we had over ten hours of drawing time. That's a lot of tangling! And oh, was it lovely.
In the previous posts, I've showed our first drawings and talked about why I liked the workshop. Yet another thing I liked was that we worked with "oldies but goodies," some of the most familiar tangles. Or early tangles that haven't had much attention recently. I love to revisit older tangles and see them in new ways.
So to continue with my own results from the workshop, plus the fabulous "mosaics" (everyone's tiles collected and displayed together), here are some more things we worked on. Today's post is not the end--there is at least one, if not two more posts about the weekend coming over the next couple of days.
Let's start with an old favorite, Bales, done on a Bijou tile (tiny tile) as a warmup:
And of course, once we had these done, we made a mosaic of them. Have a look at the cool similarities and differences:
Next we did another Bijou tile with the tangle Well, which many people have trouble doing. Frankly, I had forgotten all about this tangle and hadn't tried it in years. Loved the reminder and doing it after all this time.
...and of course, we made our mosaic of that also:
But of course we couldn't leave it there. Next we combined the two tangles onto one tile (Bales + Well = "Wales"). Oh, this was even more fun:
...and then of course the class mosaic:
Every collaboration helps you grow.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
My next Beginning Zentangle® class will be for a private group in October. That class is full.
I'll be teaching another beginning class at the Greenfield Community Center in the spring of 2019, date to be determined. They do not have a website so please call them for more information.
I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.)
Come and amaze yourself!
