I have had learning to Zen Tangle on my list for a couple of years now. The Paint Spot a local art shop in my neighbourhood offered a version this winter. Shelly Banks a talented local artist who works in pen and ink and does coptic bookbinding and mosaics was our teacher.
So I learned how to do some lovely pen and ink detailed drawings. I was delighted to find that it was fun and I could do it, at least under Shelly’s tutelage. I also learned that it is very time consuming and that if I was going to put that kind of time into something it would be appliqué or knitting.
My reason for learning it was so that I could apply it to quilting, either in appliqué or machine quilting designs. So I now have a new technique to work with and of course am beginning a collection of books to support that new technique. I look forward to seeing how this new technique influences my work.
