Accommodation Questions

Is the hotel included in the registration fee?
Nope.  Please contact one of the local hotels to book a room if needed.

I am coming by myself, how do I get a roommate?
We encourage everyone to find a room mate to save costs and to enjoy getting to know new Tanglers from around the world.  After registration we will invite you to our Tangle Island 2019 Facebook page where you can communicate with other registrants who might also be looking for a room mate.

Zentangle Questions

What if I am new to Zentangle?
We welcome everyone to our Zentangle retreat from newbies to experienced Tanglers to CZTs, to share in our wonderful relaxing retreat experience and have fun learning new forms of Zentangle art.

Most of the classes are geared toward beginning and intermediate Tangling, therefore anyone who has not completed an official beginners class is expected to take the course from a Certified Teacher in their area.

What if I can't draw?
Anyone can make beautiful artwork learning the Zentangle method.  Barb Round, CZT 10 always says, "If you can hold a pen and write your name, you can learn Zentangle."

I am not crafty or artsy can I still come?
Yes, of course, anyone can learn to draw the Zentangle method "one stroke at a time".

What supplies do I need to bring?
The only thing we ask you to bring to class is your enthusiasm and the basic kit of supplies that you received in your beginning Zentangle course. A typical basic kit includes the canvas Zentangle bag, Micron .01 pen, tortillion (smudge stick) and shading pencil.
