Introducing the Tangle Addicts Club

The response to my online Zentangle® sessions and videos has been so wonderful!! THANK YOU!! I appreciate everyone that attends and contributes!! Many of you have supported my efforts through direct donation or purchasing Zentangle supplies through my online store – EXTRA BIG THANK YOU!!!!

I have decided to take things a step further and create a membership club. Don’t worry! Tangle Time on Thursday’s will always be there and will be free as long as I am able (physically and mentally) (… ok, at least just physically hahaha!). The 3rd Tuesday special, which was always an extra, may need to change. I’m not sure.

Right now, I am offering one tier – Founding Member. 1 or 2 others will be developed.


Founding Member – All Access (Tier 3) ($15/mo)

  • Weekly Tangle Time Supporter
  • 3rd Tuesday Special Sessions Supporter (I may need to take this off the free platform and move it to the basic tier)
  • Access to all paid classes**
  • Access to Replays (Ad Free)
  • More as I develop and implement ideas such as: Members only classes and events. I may ask for opinions on future content.
  • Price below is frozen as long as you maintain membership.

$15/month USD

This is via PayPal, but you are supposed to be able to use this even if you don’t have a PayPal Account.

TBD – Tier 1 ($15?)

  • Weekly Tangle Time
  • 3rd Tuesday Special Sessions
  • Class Discount?

TBD – Tier 2 ($25?)

  • Weekly Tangle Time Supporter
  • 3rd Tuesday Special Sessions
  • 1 Class/month included?
  • Class Discount

For you early adopters, this is to thank you for your support as I am developing this program, Founding Members will “Grandfathered” into the All Access, or whatever I name the top tier of membership – your monthly price will never change as long as you maintain your membership. There will be a point that I don’t offer this tier, but will give a good notice of that.

Here is my beginning list of paid classes – in no particular order. (I’m looking to hold these on the 1st and/or 4th Tuesday of the month at 11am EDT and 7pm EDT – subject to change):

  • Zentangle® Essentials: Zentangle® is more than just about tangling. Learn about the Zentangle Method and it’s essential techniques. Good to get you started in Zentangle®, for those that want to learn more about the method behind the tangling, and as a refresher for seasoned tanglers.
  • Black Tile Tangling: Devoting the entire session to working on Black tiles. Check descriptions when this is offered as the focus and tools you need will change.
  • Chiaroscuro Tangling (Renaissance (tan) Tiles): Devoting the entire session to working with the concept called Chiaroscuro – working on tan tiles and focusing on using dark (shading) and light (highlights) to achieve beautiful results. Check descriptions when this is offered as the focus and tools you need may change.
  • Gray Tile Tangling: Devoting the entire session to working on these new Gray tiles. Check descriptions when this is offered as the focus and tools you need will change.
  • String Theory: Focus on the idea of using strings, different ideas for creating a string – especially to be able to create one without hesitation. Also sharing some tangle ideas for the different strings.
  • Shades of Gray: A focus on shading techniques that will make your tangles POP!
  • Tranzending: A technique of layering tangles, creating tranzlucence as well as explore other shading and highlighting techniques. *NOTE* We will be working a completed tile, or work of yours.
  • Zendalas: Exploring the fun to be had on these round tiles – we may use some string templates or make up our own. Check descriptions when this is offered as the focus and tools you need will change.
  • Affirmation Tangles: Re-purpose old damaged books and create a meaningful, beautiful and one of a kind piece of art. We go beyond normal tangling. Your piece is uniquely you because you choose the words to highlight.  Choose your focus! Pick words that are powerful for you, that inspire you or heal you. If this is to be a gift, choose words that would be important to the recipient.
  • Tangled Monograms: Create a one of a kind monogram with your own handwriting, with my easy (yes easy) technique.
  • Tangle-in-Tangle: This is almost a series unto itself. Tangles like: Crazy Huggins, Dinsplatz, Waybop, and more where we have one tangle that becomes the string that we tangle on.
  • ZenGems, Dewdrops, and other tangle ornaments Exploring “Heather’s way” of creating these amazing ways to add some ornamentation to your tangling.
  • Zenbossing: Using a light toned paper, learn how to create a that embossed look. (“Heather’s way”)
  • 12 Shades of Gray: Concept by Sonya Yencer
  • Seasonal Tangling Specials:
    • Snowflakes (inspired by Tint’s on Tan Series) (link to come)
    • Spring Flowers (inspired by the Tint’s on Tan Series)
    • Seashells (inspired by the Tint’s on Tan Series)
    • Autumnal Tangles
    • Spooky Tangles (Halloween)
    • Festive Tangles (Christmasy)
  • More as I develop them.

**Access to all paid classes: Right now, when you subscribe, you will automatically be entered into the class and receive an email with class link from my GoMeet platform. (Some of you already get this for the Thursday Tangle Time sessions.) I will also add you to an email distribution list either on my email or through MailChimp or similar service, to keep you updated on the classes coming up. You can still follow me on other services, but know that you do not need to purchase tickets for the any class.

You can still follow on Eventbrite or Meet-up, but do not purchase the classes through there. You will be automatically registered for everything as a Founding Member.

Thank you for your support!!

    Hi Heather
    I love your classes, both recorded and live. With this new system will the videos that are currently on u-tube be put into a private section?
    Have a great day

      Hi Jackie!! Thank you so much!!! I appreciate your kind words!! The only thing that will be put in private is MAYBE past 3rd Tuesday class replays. Everything else will stay the same. The quickie videos, Tangle Time on Thursdays, and those replays will remain available for everyone to see.
