This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending, and the honor of teaching at, We Love 2 Tangle in Calgary AB (Canada).
Organized by Sandra Chatelain CZT, the day-long workshop attracted 50 avid tanglers from Calgary, Canmore, Grand Prairie, Edmonton, Red Deer, Revelstoke, and Saskatoon. There were seven CZTs present and four of us taught something. Here's yours truly with Laura Harms and Cindy Hagen.
Laura shared her Zentangle story, parts of which I knew and parts of which I didn't. She also taught us the tangle Phicops, developed by her husband Brad. I've done Phicops before but really 'got it' this time watching it take shape before my eyes. I'm really pleased with the tile I did.
That cool little curly thing in the corner was developed from a pattern I noticed on the wall sconces in the room. :)
Nina Klaiman showed some variations of Crescent Moon, and Cindy Hagen did the same with Betweed. Here are my tiles, Crescent Moon incomplete.
I taught two sessions. The first was variations of Paradox and Hollibaugh, including the now named tangles Morse and Windfarm. I offered my two demo tiles for the door prize table but forgot to take photos first!
