Knotted Tangles Class – What to Expect

We will begin our time together by learning the pattern TWISTA in a simplified way. We will then set up our Zendala tile using the Markus Operandus, which will be sent to you prior to class. You can also download this tool directly from the Zentangle website, if you prefer. Once our tile is set up, we will create a tangle with TWISTA, VEGA, and TIPPLE. We will also cover how to create a gem using chalk pastel pencils. For those who do not have chalk pastel pencils, I will demonstrate how to shade the center bit to create a rounded, gem-like effect in black and white.

This class is intended for tanglers who are familiar with The Zentangle Method® and the basic concepts. There are many great resources out there – starting with Zentangle HQ – to learn the basics. I also offer two versions of an introductory class: Introduction to Zentangle® and Intro Zentangle & Watercolor.

Classroom Information & Policies

Zoom links will be emailed to you before class. The class will be recorded and you’ll have access to that recording for 7 days after the class. Also, at the conclusion, you will be provided with reference materials for the patterns we created.

In our time together, I will create a judgement-free zone. There are no mistakes in Zentangle! That means that each participant can go at their own pace and ability. I will encourage everyone to experiment and see what works for them.
