I had the pleasure of being invited by one of the Manistique class students – Annie – to come and teach a class in her area of Wisconsin. At first she planned to have a few friends over to her house, but as word of the Zentangle opportunity spread, more and more people wanted to attend, and she eventually had to rent out the local town hall with over 20 students registered!

Annie really knows how to run an event! She had goody bags for all the students, which included homemade bird suet, hand crafted mini ornaments, hand-tangled magnetic bookmarks and a 08 Micron pen. At break, we enjoyed black and white tangled cupcakes provided by a baker friend. Annie also provided hand made scarves, tangle-inspired jewelry and a bottle of wine as raffle prizes to raise funds for a local holiday meal for anyone needing food and company for Christmas. I was very impressed by her thoughtfulness and generosity.

The students were a group of very enthusiastic and creative ladies. Below are some pictures of the class:


Here are the mosaics of the lovely tiles they created:


The tangles in the above tiles: Crescent Moon, Zander, Floo, Cubine, Beedz (Sandy Steen Bartholomew), Rain, Keeko, Flux, Cadent.

I want to thank Annie for giving me the opportunity to share the Zentangle method with these wonderful women. I’d be happy to return for more classes at any time!
