Our Class Tile Mosaic - A Show and Tell

In class last Saturday, I presented a gift wrapped package to each student - Christmas in August we called it.
Each student received four pre strung tiles to create a mosaic and a pretty black frame to display their finished project.

The string was inspired by a tile floor that I saw in a grand old Florida hotel.  We used some familiar tangles as well as some that we learned together:  Amaze, Knightsbridge, Twing, Tidings, Fescu, Keeko, Betweed - all by Maria Thomas.

As we only had two short hours together and the work was very detailed, each of my twelve talented tanglers completed - or nearly completed - one tile and committed to finish the rest at home.

At the end of class, we assembled our tiles on my framed board and created this stunning mosaic ~

Artists: Pat Carey, Geoffry Young, Pam Marion, CZT, Donnnie Adamczyk, CZT, Susie Brosonski, Glenna Oro,

The magic of the Zentangle® method unfolded (once again) as we placed our tiles side-by-side. Same string, same tangles, and yet each of our creations were uniquely our own.  We were in awe of what unfolded as the pieces came together - much too much joy not to spill over and share.
