Entangled in Fun!

Really excited to be meeting up with fellow CZTs at the European CZT Seminar this weekend to tangle, chat and learn lots of new things. 🙂 This year, we will be having our fun in the beautiful setting of Moor Hall in Berkshire.

A ‘Peaceful’ journey

art-competition-smallIt doesn’t matter where we are on our own journey, and whether that journey be art or life. We can sometimes feel daunted travelling with others who are on same journey as us, like being in a carriage on a train and others being further along or perhaps even in the next carriage.

However, it is good for us to get out of our seat of comfort once in a while and take a few baby steps to sit with those train passengers, if only for a little while, learn from their vast experience and to admire the view.

And what a view! Here is a picture of the “trained” artists who have entered their work into the Kickstart Art Competition run by Hobbycraft in the Woking store. As you can see, their work is stunning, particularly the beautiful Gold Retriever, which is even more amazing to see “in the flesh”.

Should you be near Hobbycraft in Woking over the next couple of days, do get on board, take a look and choose your favourite, as the work of these passengers is truly amazing and I feel very humbled and in awe to be temporarily perched on a seat with them in their carriage.

Rules of Zentangle

There are no rules when creating a zentangle apart from this one:

“No eating crisps when you tangle as you can get grease spots on your artwork – yikes!”

Although the crisps were really yummy 🙂

Latest class

We spent a lovely time on Saturday morning at the MakeCreateCraft studio in Mayford, near Woking (who offer creative craft workshops), sharing a Beginners Zentangle class with a lovely group of keen and talented students and our host Kate (who makes great homemade cake :-)). Do drop by and check out their beautiful work in our student gallery.

New candidates join Great BriTangle

class-photo-18-06-16While some UK voters might still be undecided about voting in the EU Referendum, those who attended Zentangle Beginners class at the St John’s Memorial Hall, near Woking this Saturday (18th June 2016), were purely focused on one thing. As you can see from their artwork, they produced some really inspiring tiles, which gets our vote! Should you still be undecided, do take a look at the Students Gallery to see their artwork in its full glory.

If you would also like to experience first hand the mindful quietness and creative fun of Zentangle, then do sign up to join those who have already booked onto the beginners class taking place on 16th July. Do check out the classes page to find out more.

May you be the first . . .

As you may spot in the photographs a few of our students made it a relaxing full day and attended both classes. As you will see on both the students’ ‘Beginners‘ and ‘Beginners Plus‘ galleries, all our students produced some beautiful creations – so do pop by and check them out.

As one of our Beginner students exclaimed via the class feedback, “I can do drawing! and it can look good”. I am sure you will agree from viewing both of our galleries that this is definitely the case.

Artwork springing up in St Johns

class-photoSpring feels like it is now in the air and so is Zentangle for the group of budding artists who attended Zentangle Beginners class at the St John’s Memorial Hall, near Woking this Saturday (16th April 2016). As you can see from their artwork, they produced some really beautiful creations. So do hop on over to the Students Gallery to see their artwork in its full glory.
