Finding Time

Explore the possibilities of the Zentangle®!

Zentangle® is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. This class will explore the possibilities of interpreting a Zentangle® drawing into an interesting needlework design finished as a booklet cover. Traditional black work embroidery is used to work the patterning and give dimension to the booklet cover. Additionally, this class will explore combining photo transfer, counted, surface, and padded techniques, watercolor shading, and easy finishing in a fun and spectacular memory booklet! Inside is an accordion folded booklet (3″ x 3″) which may be personalized with sayings and drawings which repeat the patterns and designs on the cover. This is a fun class to learn more about Zentangle and how to convert line drawings into needlework.
