Mary Rose Feldman‘s ebook, “Tangled Wreath”, was the inspiration for the class at Icarus Creative Arts Studio this past weekend. After reaching out to Mary Rose and gaining her approval to teach a “Tangled Wreath” class here in San Diego, six ladies gathered for some Fall-time tangling. Two hours isn’t much time to draw all the patterns and then add color, but we did get most of that accomplished. Everyone works at different paces so the basic outline of the wreath was presented, and a quick review of the patterns to be used. Most everyone was familiar with the patterns, just a couple needed reviewing.
After getting our “Diva Dance…Rock n’ Roll” flowers down onto our tile, we added some greenery and then everyone went off on their own speed. The pattern list was in order of drawing so that helped! The final designs are beautiful. And, once again, very different each and every one. While we could have filled our wreaths in a little more, time didn’t allow us to do that. Hopefully, there will be a second attempt at home and more time for filler patterns. All in all, it was enjoyed by everyone, and gave us ideas that could cover all four seasons …. Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer! These would also be great on smaller tiles to give as gifts or create greeting cards. Can’t wait to give a Christmas wreath a try!
