First Class Report

Oh it was a great class! The nine people who came were very intent on learning the tangles. They were excited to be there and very focused. After the first tangle, they were like little kids..."Can we do another one? Can we?"

At first I was nervous, but once I began talking about Zentangles, my passion came through and it felt so natural to be sharing what I feel is a great technique and life builder.
Here are the two class tangles we did:




I tried to do tangles that were not in the regular kit, and yet simple enough that they would be able to advance to standard tangles on their own. As you can see each person's tangles were unique to their own style - but so cool as mosaic together.

Reminder that I will be having my Zentangle Club Class on Thursday, July 22 at 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. Let me know if you would be interested in attending. The cost is $15.00 per person, which includes some accessories, and several new tangles to learn. 416.431.9980.

I will be in the London, Grand Bend Area on "vacation" from July 19-22, if any Southwestern Ontario people would be interested in a course during that time. LET ME KNOW ASAP! I know of a location in London where I could host a class. deb@kopeschny.ca

In addition, My next Zentangle 101 class will be August 4, 2010, from 10:00-12 noon at the Quilter's Block, 2861 St. Clair Avenue East. Cost is $40.00.
Hope to see you Soon!

Excitement!

Greetings friends! I am getting so excited about my class on Saturday, July 10 at Quilters Block, 2861 St. Clair Avenue East!

I have recovered from visits, and am saying adios to my family - the kids are off on their adventures! so I will be able to concentrate on my business.

Last week - July 1st, to be exact, I celebrated Canada Day in a very public way.... I tangled out in the Sun! At the park! My friend at the Quilters Block had rented a booth at the East York Park Celebration and allowed me to share my tangles there. People love to watch what you are doing! there was a regular stream of people watching, and asking questions. Although I didn't get much initial response, I gave out a lot of cards. All of us tanglers know, that it just takes a few people drawing and it catches on real quick.
Here are some of the large size tangles I drew in the park.

 I have also been working on incorporating my tangles into my quilts. Here are some photos of tangles I have drawn on fabric and as a larger piece, which I will then quilt on.... I hope you enjoy!
