Tangle Island Victoria Was a Success!

We all had a wonderful time last weekend at Tangle Island Victoria at the McTavish Art Academy!

The McTavish is such a great facility.....  we had plenty of space to move about, do our eco-dying outside in the sunshine, and sit comfortably inside two to a table. Jerryann and I both think it will be a great venue for future classes.

All our students loved the eco-dying process! We had so much fun picking plants and leaves for our eco packages.  Thanks go out to everyone who brought goodies from their garden.




After drying all our beautifully eco-printed pages, we made little Bitty Bookz (thanks to Chris Titus for a great tutorial!)

Such great eco-impressions!

The smoke bush makes great deep blue/grey prints.


Bitty Bookz with eco-printed covers.
We also learned fun techniques using watercolour pencils. I know I am looking forward to playing with these techniques all summer!


And then Jerryann spoiled us again by introducing us all to Tessellations!  So many possibilities!



Thank you to all students for making teaching so easy and enjoyable.  We'll see some of you in two weeks at Tangle Island in Parksville.

2019 Registration is now open

June 22-23 at the MacMillan Arts Centre
Parksville, Vancouver Island, BC Canada.

Zentangle goes VINTAGE! ……
Take a step into the past…..
With period projects that will bring to mind antique lace, your grandmother’s tea set
and the formal manners of days gone by….

Come and join in the fun, and indulge your creative self!
The workshop is two full days, (Saturday and Sunday June 22 & 23) however if possible we would love it if you could join us on the Friday 21st evening for a meet and greet time of fellowship. (We pick a nice venue that serves appies and wine if you are so inclined)

Saturday night we often make reservations somewhere for those who still want to schmooze over dinner, while others prefer some down time), and then we open the Centre for optional evening tangling and sharing. 

The Tangle Island Store will be available as always with a variety of Zentangle supplies, pens, paper, twinks, handmade journals and other art work and supplies.

Check out the registration page for information and payment options. 

Once you register, you will receive an invitation to our Facebook page for further information and updates, and a chance to see and be seen and get to know the group. Please be aware space is limitedalthough we do offer a waiting list.

Don't know what Zentangle is but think this looks like a lovely way to spend a weekend? (It is!!!)  Just take an introduction to Zentangle class prior to attending.  Teachers are easy to find in any area of the world, thru the Zentangle.com website, or locally.  Please check with the teaching schedules of Jerryann Haggart at Tangled Artistry, Nancy Dawes at I Teach Tangling.  Or try a CZT in your area such as Rhonda Roy at A Tangling Life (Parskville), Barb Round (Campbell River), or Natasha Dash (Vancouver area).
