Meet Kim, certified Zentangle® instructor and Original Sewing & Quilt Expo staff member!
Kim is a gifted teacher who travels to each Expo, bringing with her the knowledge and expertise of the Zentangle® technique and craft!
Being a stay-at-home mom of four, Kim loves her job because of the relationships that have grown among the staff, vendors and students. (We love you too, Kim!) Kim wanted to bring a high-quality class to a company that’s committed to a high-quality standard. She says that each city is an opportunity to reconnect with former students, catch up with them and see what projects that have finished or are working on from previous classes.
What is Zentangle®? The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.
Here are some example tiles of Kim’s “Intro to Zentangle®-ing” class. In this class, students will learn basic language of Zentangle®. They will learn how to draw several basic tangles, basic shading and color and combine them with high quality paper tiles.
Inspired, but not an artist? It is assured that you do not have to possess ANY artistic ability, in fact, it is even better if you can’t draw at all! Anyone can do it. It’s a mediative, relaxing process.
Kim went off to Providence, RI for 5 days to learn from the founders of Zentangle®, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. Kim quotes, “It was a magical experience…”.
Kims class, “More Zentangle®-ing”, is all about putting the different designs onto fabric and learning about the circular design form called Zendalas. These patterns are twisted and turned to create undulating patterns. Adding color, shading and other features, here are some examples:
Zengangle®-ing is perfect for any of your household/home-dec creations! You can use patterns on t-shirts, quilts and other fabric projects! Get wild and get inspired in your tangles!
