Tangle Art

by | Jul 1, 2024 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Greene County Makers is offering a newly added class on tangle art. There’s still time to pre-register for the first class to be held July 2.

Relax and enjoy the process as we use tangles, or repetitive patterns, to create small abstract works of art. There will be two classes, one on Tuesday, July 2, and the second class on Tuesday, July 9.

In the first class, we will learn the jargon, the process, and five beginner tangles as we acquaint ourselves with tangle art. In the second class, we will experiment with using highlights, applying tangles to other types of art, staining our tiles with tea, pounded flower petals, and other natural items, and finding resources for adding new tangles to our repertoire.

Cost : $15 per class

Materials provided:

  • tiles (paper) of varying sizes and colors
  • watercolor paper
