Registration is now open

June 16-17, 2018

at the MacMillan Arts Centre
Parksville, Vancouver Island, BC Canada.

We have a full schedule of amazing NEW workshops for you this year!

Do you like to garden? Do you take quiet walks on the beach or in the woods enjoying the bounty of nature and collect fallen leaves and flowers?  One of our projects this year is eco-dying tiles and paper with all sorts of leaves, twigs, moss and rusty bits, then exploring tangle techniques on the resulting beautiful paper.  This is an amazing process that you can repeat at home to create spectacular art pieces or fashion into a booklet showcasing your work.

Another class focuses on the soft and subtle art of Subtractive Tangling…
And then again… there is playing with colour to a tangler’s delight…
We love to surprise and delight you…

So treat yourself, come and join us…Saturday and Sunday, June 16-17, 2018.
 We also invite you to the Centre on Saturday Evening for optional tangling and fellowship time. The Tangle Island Store will be available with a variety of Zentangle supplies, pens, paper, handmade journals and Twinkling H2Os….

Check out the registration page for information and payment options. Once you register, you will be invited to our Facebook page for further plans and communications and a chance to get to know the group. Please be aware space is limited, although we do offer a waiting list. 

If you are new to Zentangle, please take a beginners class prior to attending. To do this check with the teaching schedules of Jerryann Haggart at Tangled Artistry, Nancy Dawes at I Teach TanglingOr try a CZT in your area such as Rhonda Roy at A Tangling Life (Parskville), Barb Round (Campbell River), or Natasha Dash (Vancouver area).

We will be waiting to welcome you for a lovely tangle time away this June.

June Workshop a Success!

Our June 2016 workshop was a great success!  We had 15 wonderful students eager to learn new techniques with Twinking H2Os and Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

Everyone received their project kit in a beautiful butterfly box with lots of goodies to play with. Then we all created watercolour wash backgrounds with both Twinks and Tombows. All the pages were truly unique with the personality and colour choices of the artist.

Jerryann Haggart, CZT
We had an amazing time together learning and sharing and making our butterfly booklets!

There is always food at these wonderful events!  We had finger food style fruit, veggies, cheese and crackers and best of all - chocolate!

We finished off the weekend by recognizing a new CZT on Vancouver Island, Rhonda Roy.

All in all, it was a fabulous time.  We'll be announcing registration soon for the next Tangle Island workshop in October 2016.

Stay tuned and keep Tangling!

Tangle Island 2016

Hello from Tangle Island!

This year instead of a full-on Tangle Island Retreat we are offering two Tangle Island Workshop Weekends:

Saturday and Sunday: June 4th & 5th  and October 1st & 2nd

We are offering these at the MacMillan Art Centre in beautiful Parksville, where so many enjoyed the gorgeous parks and beaches at Tangle Island last year.

In order to make these affordable, we are simply charging for the workshop (all supplies and a snack smorgasbord) and leaving it to you to select from a range of accommodations and dining venues from high end spa (The Beach Club.. we love it) to low end (RV on the Beach…does it get any better?) Check out the accommodation list we have provided and find the perfect fit for your Tangle Island adventure!

Each workshop will be unique with its own theme, supplies, tangles and projects. Twice the projects and twice the FUN!

Our fist workshop features the Tangle Island Team duo Nancy Dawes and Jerryann Haggart bringing you:

June 4-5, 2016
Saturday and Sunday
9:30 - 4:30

Learn multiple beautiful background techniques with Twinkling H2Os
and Tombow Dual Brush Pens. We will explore the beauty of tangling
with Butterfly and Dragonfly shapes in your own personal hand sewn watercolour booklet.

Cost: $198
Includes supplies needed to complete workshop projects
with a finger food smorg available at breaks and lunch.

Check out our registration page for more information about registering for your Tangle Island Workshop weekend.  More information about the second workshop in October will be released soon!

Happy Tangling!
