Zentangle Class at the Embroiderers’ Guild

This week I had the pleasure to teach a one-day Zentangle class at the Canadian Embroiderers’ Guild, London (Ontario). There were 66 people in the class!

Class

Here is the mosaic of everyone’s first tile (sorry to those who are missing, some people left early before I took the photo).

Zentangle tiles

I used a new setup for the first time in this class, using my new iPad as a document camera. I was also able to use my iPad for a slide presentation at the beginning of the class.

I hade a great surprise at the end of the class, I received this card signed by all participants. Thanks everybody!

I just realized that I hadn’t posted about this great class I had last year at the home of Beth Whitney in London, Ontario. This was a great group of new tanglers.

Coast to Coast 2012 convention

Last weekend, I had a great time at the Coast to Coast Creative Arts convention.

Here is a photo of my booth:

My booth

On the left side, I had books for sale, including my Tangle Journals and my Tangle Organizers.

Booth - left side

and on the right side, I had a binder with samples of my work, and a space where I could demo; I mainly drew on square Zentangle tiles and Zendala tiles. The display on the far right is an acrylic showcase I use for pens, tiles, kits, etc.

Booth - right side

Here is my teaching setup, my computer on the right, projector on the left, and document camera in the centre. (If I look tired in this photo it’s because this class took place from 6-10pm at the end of a day that started at 7am. Things livened up once the class got going.)

Teaching setup

Finally, here are all the students’ projects from my class. We created a multi-purpose greeting card that can be copied and used for different purposes by adding a sentiment in the centre. Didn’t they all do a great job? Even the rebel who drew in her sketchbook instead of the card. 🙂

Zentangle and Colour class Feb. 12, 2012

Earlier today, I had a great Zentangle and Colour class at the St. Thomas Elgin Arts Centre. This was mainly a technique class. We played with a variety of media that can be used to add colour to Zentangle-inspired art: coloured pencils, watercolour pencils, markers, and more.

It was great fun to play with all the art supplies. Here are sheets of card stock where the students experimented:
