Tangle was one of the activities at the Top of the Park. The video in this post shows how much fun the event was! These colorful stretchy bands were donated to The Scrap Box. The fun continues when you make a creative re-used craft project. Use the brightly colored bands for hair on a crazy critter. Braid and decorate with faux jewels to make wristbands or hair scrunchies. Tie up a gift package. Sew them to a tee-shirt for colorful fringe. Use the elastic bands for weaving. The scretchy bands are available in the Bulk shopping area for a limited time!

Tangle is a huge, messy, fun, interactive elastic weaving event created live by children and their families. It’s part spectacular visual arts installation, part performance, part playground, part dance party and all chaos.

In a space like a giant pegboard, children and families create a landscape together, weaving elastic in many colors around tall slender golden poles. It is an organic and constantly evolving piece, vibrant and fueled by live music. Tangle is where children take control and create a giant abstract visually stunning artwork in public spaces, by stretching their bodies and their imaginations.
