Wall Tangling – Sat 27th August

Following on from the week in July, which despite the rain never stopping, we got lots of tangling done! Although we the 7m wide canvas was completed, we didn’t quite get all the smaller 1.5m x 2.5m canvases finished off, so I’m hosting a wee pop up event at South Library, in the Sydenham Room.

For those interested to add few more tangles, Please feel free to pop along between 10.15am and 3.45pm (Library opening hours are between 10am – 4pm) and complete the final canvases.  They are going to be displayed on a table this time round, so you can grab a seat this time!

All inspiration, instruction and guidance given on how to ‘tangle’.  Using the Zentangle Method big scale   –  Join in & get your creative juices flowing.

Lots of wall space and all materials, instruction and inspiration provided. Grab your friends and whanau and add your tangles to the giant canvas. A free event supported by Chch City Creative Communities.

Do you tangle?  Have you considered going BIG scale? Come and add to this collaborative group work on a larger scale, add your favourite tangles, and learn some new ones! 

Do you not know what tangling is?  Come and see what it’s all about – and bring the Whanau too! If you can hold a pen and have a half-hour to do something fun and creative then join in this free community collaborative project to ‘tangle’ a wall.

Don’t think you can draw? Don’t worry, you’ll find this wonderful drawing system easy with its simple step-by-step process.

Of course all the work completed and then sealed and on display at South Library in February 2023 – on the Gallery Walls for the month!


Congratulations everyone!

It was amazing to produce this enormous piece of art, with a team of tanglers that turned up to join in the fun.  Completed the border with some shading, and the remaining 6 tiny spaces that need to get filled after the 5 days of tangling, and then it was on show at CCC’s South Library Gallery Wall for the month of February 2022, watch the time-lapse below to view this incredible piece of tangling work unfold. (Although my camera skills weren’t in focus for day 5, but I am sure you will get the general idea!)

Ta- dah!!!!!!

TangleatioNZ and Life in Vacant Spaces joined together for a creative community project over five days in September/ October 2021, to ‘tangle’ some patterns on the wall at LiVS’s site in Waltham. It was delightful to make it happen.

In situ behind the fiction shelves! 168 tangles on display! by a Team of Tanglers: Al, Alice, Arthur, Caitlyn, Carol, Caroline, Elsie, Evie, James, Jess, Jinting, Kale, Kim, Liz, Michelle, Nicky, Rachel, Sam, Sharon, Shijuan, Tish, Trish and Ildica

This is what happens when three CZTs get together for a weekend in Auckland…

watch the timelapse of the previous wall – new one coming soon!
A little bit of practice beforehand!
