Anyone up for a Zentangle Retreat?



Because art is so much fun to do with other people, it seems to me that a Zentangle Re-treat would be something fun to try and work out.
   As I poked around with the idea, little signs along the way led to Oakwood Retreat Center in Selma Indiana. This sweet and earthy little farm is out in the country, and they love to host  groups that in some way nourish the spirit. I'd say Zentangle does just that, so we've planned a long weekend retreat for March 17 through March 20. It begins on the evening of St. Patty's Day (Thursday) and ends on the first day of Spring (Sunday). And we'll throw a full moon in, too.
   We're calling it Zentangle® FloatFest: A Re-Treat for Zentangle Lovers. The idea is to provide a time and space for people who love Zentangle to connect with others, get away, learn something new, relax, do nothing, do everything, do a little, do a lot. We want to provide a space where each person can 'float' with their own Zentangle experience. There will be structure for those who like that, but there will also be the freedom to pick and choose what each person feels is right for each moment.
   We are still forming classes and activities, and as we have information to share, we will share it here. If you would like more information or have specific questions, send me an email at openseed@woh.rr.com. (Subject line: FloatFest)

  4. I'd love to do this. I live about 3.5 hours away from there and could use a long weekend of doing nothing but tangling!! That weekend is right around my birthday too - perfect birthday present :-) As long as Michigan weather cooperates I think I'm game! Love the open forum to allow us to pick and choose what we want to do and be worry-free if we don't want to participate in an activity!

  5. I like the idea! However, due to family member's surgery, probably cannot make it.

  7. Sometime I dream about throwing caution to the wind, putting my 'stuff' (except art supplies!!) in storage, hopping in my Honda to just start driving to meet the people who write each of the blogs I follow (and who follow me), who attend retreats and give classes, and who have added immeasurably to the pleasure I take in life every day. Imagine a small caravan of us on the road..... Don't know if indiana in March will work for me, but I'll be there in spirit!!!!!

  8. Oh, I would love to do this, depending on cost and if I could get away from work. It is about a 3 to 4 hour drive for me.
