Project Pack #02 - The 12 Days of Zentangle

Yes, so soon we know, but the timing is just perfect for this next one. 

It's that time of year again for our end of year  12 Days of Zentangle. And it's a perfect opportunity for a Project Pack. 

Project Pack #02 is NOT available for purchase yet, but we wanted to give you all a heads up for some of the details and a rough timeline so you can plan around it. 


Project Pack #2 includes all the tangling supplies to tangle along with us for our 2017 12 days of Zentangle series. 

The 12 days of Zentangle has become our annual tangling tradition that playfully uses the Twelve Days of Christmas format to lead us through 12 consecutive days of tangling together. 

Each year has had a different theme. Check out some of our past years here: 
This year's theme will be a metaphorical stroll down memory lane. Each day in the series we will visit moments in Zentangle history as we reminisce about the tiles, the tangles, and the techniques of the past while creating things completely new.  Each lesson will explore different tiles and tools and guide you through the creation of your own tangled masterpieces. 

Although this series has a festive Holiday flair, it is non-denominational and the lessons are pure Zentangle. We welcome you to join us regardless of your traditions. It is too much fun to tangle along with this beautiful Zentangle community.

Because of the "12 Days" format of this series, we will create 12 videos. Each day a new video will be posted for the full 12 days. The videos will remain available for an extended period on YouTube to be watched again and again at your convenience.

* Please note that Project Packs are a convenient way to get the supplies used in the lessons. They are not required to tangle along on these videos. Supplies you already own can be used. The supplies used in each video will be noted at the start of each video lesson.

Retail: $32.95
CZT (6-Pack):  $155.70


Project Pack #02 will become available for purchase in mid November. We will notify you via newsletter as soon as it is available.
