The Zentomology of Tangles, A zenAgain Event-for CZTs only (In Person)

November 6 - November 9

$1895.00 – $2450.00

In the early years of sharing and teaching the Zentangle Method, Rick and Maria wanted to create a way to categorize tangles. They began to design a system, a process to make sense of the study and relationship of tangles. It’s been honed over time and has blossomed into a playful and helpful way of describing, deconstructing, and understanding the nature and potential of each tangle. Borrowing from the term entomology, the study and classification of insects, we decided that the system in which we study and classify tangles would be called the Zentomology™ of tangles.

Can we, as artists, as tanglers, put our scientist hats on to create potions and formulas all with tangles? Is it science? Or is it the magic of the Zentangle Method?

Only one way to find out …Join us for The Zentomology of Tangles, 2022!

Over the past two years, the Zentangle HQ team has been passionately working on a new, updated, and embellished edition of the Zentangle Zenthology. We are excited to time the release of this special, CZT only book with this year’s CZT gathering.  We invite our attendees to join us at The Zentomology of Tangles- a zenAgain event, as we embark on a fanciful journey, page by page through this expanded version of our original Zentangle Zenthology. This special CZT only event will dig deep into the Zentomology of tangles. We will bring new light to how tangles are deconstructed, categorized, and applied. We will examine and create with new perspectives. We will deepen our knowledge of tangles by exploring their roots, studying their evolution, dissecting tangleations, experimenting with combinations of tangles, and studying ways to link tangles.

Come one- come all, CZTs! We are headed back to the hotel where it all began, our first zenAgain. Gurney’s Resort and Marina is located in the heart of historical downtown Newport, on Goat Island. As we create beauty within the walls of this glorious hotel, we can appreciate the great beauty that surrounds us on our own island of creativity. Don’t just take our word for it, it’s “The most beautiful hotel in Rhode Island” according to Architectural Digest. With plenty of room to accommodate our Zentangle growing family, we will enjoy comfort and beauty throughout our tangle time together.

The attendance fee for The Zentomology of Tangles includes your classroom experience, supplies, surprises, coffee breaks and ALL meals starting with Sunday evening reception and ending with Wednesday mid-day, eight meals altogether. You are invited to check in with Zentangle anytime after 3:00 pm* on Sunday, November 6th with hotel check-in starting at 4:00 pm. The ever enticing Zentangle Store will be open and there will be a welcome reception and reunion that evening that will surely be a blast! We will finish up on Wednesday after lunch around 1-2:00 pm.
