Tangled Labyrinth Journal Workshop

tangled labyrinth journal inside coverI’ve been playing with a simple handmade book lately, and labyrinth forms as focus exercise and use as a Zentangle string. Recently I also came across some simple painted labyrinth forms that have encouraged me to bring more color into creating a hand drawn finger labyrinth.

So why labyrinths? I’ve always been drawn to the meditative and peaceful experience of walking a labyrinth, how it draws your entire being into a single-minded focus of forward motion. It brings you here, now, to concentrate on the very moment. When I started experimenting with adding Zentangle to the experience, it opened up a whole new level of focus.

simple-tangled-labyrinth-filledIn 2013 I had the opportunity to teach a simple drawn labyrinth form, broke n down in Zentangle fashion, to a group of teachers at Sandy B’s studio as a small part of a Zentangle Spiritual retreat day. Next month, I am returning there to teach a full day of using Zentangle with Labyrinths, complete with your own handmade labyrinth journal. This workshop is open to anyone who has attended a Zentangle workshop with a CZT.

Come join us!

A full day of drawing and tangling with labyrinths!  We’ll start the day by making a simple yet special sewn journal with a Lokta or Japanese rice paper cover, then dive in to learning to draw a variety of Labyrinth forms, broken down into steps.

Learn and use tangles that work well for movement thru and ‘walking’ the path as with  your pen and experience yet a whole new layer of focus with a guided meditation.  Includes ideas for setting up a few extra labyrinth string pages with color techniques for you to tangle in once you get home.

    I just love your tangled Christmas ornaments. I just downloaded some paper boxes and triangles to make ornaments. I make ornaments toppers from card stock , rhinestones , glitter and any thing I can glue to them. I would like to know if you have any tips to share with me for the tangled ones. I love boxes, so I will probably do those the most. I do a show in Nov. and sell them.
    Hope to hear from you.

      Hi Sarah… Thanks! Regarding your question, probably my biggest tip when it comes to ornaments and especially when you are tangling on a substrate (surface) that is new to you is to TEST, TEST and TEST before committing your precious ink and objects. If you are using a new kind of pen or paint on a new surface, first test to see how it stays… does it rub off easily or get smudged? Use a test piece and then also try different finishes if making ornaments to sell. Some finishes will blur some inks and paints.

      When I was asked to tangle a paper mache dog for a fundraiser, I knew I would be working on a black acrylic painted surface with gel pens, so I took a piece of cardboard and painted it with black acrylic paint, then tested the gel pens I wanted to use. Then I divided the piece into sections and tested different acrylic clear coat sprays, finishes, mod podge, etc until I was sure I wouldn’t ruin the paper mache dog I was about to embellish.

      Hope that helps!
