Where is Glace hiding?

During our recent 'Winter Deer' class I provided students with a handout showing some 'winter-inspired' tangles for them to learn for their winter Zentangle fun. One of them is called Glace. It is a tangle created by Rick and Maria in November 2013. It reminded them of ice as it melts and reforms. It reminds me of the roof of a gingerbread house, or in the variation shown here it reminds me of fairy lights when you first open the box and they are all so neatly arranged :) But one of my students contacted me to say she couldn't find it online. There is a Glace tangle that someone has posted, but it doesn't look at all like this! So here's the scoop...there are a few tangles from Rick and Maria that they have shared with CZTs along the way, but for one reason or another never got around to publishing the stepouts, so those few are not available at and generally no stepouts have been posted for them. What seems to have happened with this one is that someone else has created a different tangle independently and named it Glace, so if you google that name it comes up with a completely different tangle! To find more 'hidden' tangles check out THIS PAGE on and then ask your local CZT to teach them to you in class. We can take a look at Glace during our 'All Boxed Up' class on Sunday or ask me to teach it whenever we next meet.

To introduce our new Monday morning Zentangle program at Franklin Art Center, we are having a free 'Meet the Teacher' and Zentangle demo. Swing by the art center Monday Sept 14th, 9-10:30am to meet me, see some Zentangle art and find out about Zentangle, the art method that everyone can do, where beautiful art is made one simple line at a time. I will also teach an informal demo class (ages 8+ thru adults and seniors) from 9:45-10:15. Come by and join the fun! Kids welcome with a parent. Tea and Tangles will run twice monthly on Monday mornings, $20 per class or $120 for eight class the series (Sept-Dec).

Fall Fun - Breathe, relax, create

I love this time of year. Even though my kids are now eighteen and twenty, I still can't help thinking yellow school bus and backpacks and new crayola crayons and pencils! New routines, cooler weather, fall colors, holidays bringing a special focus on sharing with friends and family. In honor of the season, I have been working with Kate Lamontagne at Kamala Art and Soul and Linda Kabat at Franklin Art Center to ensure plenty of fun opportunities for you to come play at their studios. Keep reading to find out more...

In Franklin we are launching a new program called 'Tea and Tangles' in a new time slot for Zentangle on Monday mornings. Yes, while the kids are occupied and entertained and working hard at school, you get to breathe and relax, sip your favorite beverage, and make beautiful art at your local art studio :) How fun is that! 

If you need a restful weekend class, then consider 'Traveling with Tangles' and join us for our relaxing Sunday afternoon classes over at Kamala. 

Both programs, 'Tea and Tangles' and 'Traveling with Tangles', run twice per month and will include a mix of skills classes and seasonal projects. I am also working with Woodside Montessori School in Millis to see if we can set up a kids afterschool program again this year, probably on Mondays; if anyone has kids that would be interested in weekly afterschool Zentangle program please let me know. 

And finally (for now!) stay tuned for some Family Fun classes at Franklin Art Center - more on that soon! Check out the details and photos on my class information page CLICK HERE and if you have any questions, suggestions or requests, please call or email - as always I would love to hear from you! 774-571-8461 or You can also stay in touch with the latest news on my Facebook page - CLICK HERE or just google 'The Traveling Tangler' (its a public page, you don't have to be a FB member to view it)

How much fun will YOU have this fall? Hope to see you soon :)
