Sink into the mindful and peaceful art of Zentangle with Niki Lawrence and learn how to draw these incredible and intricate designs!

In this class, you will learn how to create and balance your own stack of Zentangle rocks, known as Cairns. Once balanced, we will colour our drawn rocks and then cover them with beautiful Zentangle patterns. And then, with a little bit of magic, we will turn them into realistic looking, dimensional "rocks".

This is a very relaxing and satisfying class inspired by Jennifer Cottrell CZT.

The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn fun and relaxing way to create beautiful images by drawing structured, repeated patterns. It increases focus and creativity and provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal wellbeing.

Some benefits and uses include relaxation, simple and quick access to mindfulness, and it has been shown to help with insomnia, chronic pain, anxiety, self-esteem, panic attacks and improve fine motor skills, relieves stress, and is great for team building activities.

There are no mistakes in Zentangle so you should finish up feeling relaxed and refreshed with beautiful artwork to admire!

I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT). I have been tangling for about 8 years and teaching for over 5 years. Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, fun and relaxing way to create beautiful images by drawing repeated structured patterns. No artistic ability is required. If you can hold a pen and write your name you are half way there. There are no mistakes in Zentangle, so you can’t get it wrong. Zentangle increases focus and creativity as well as providing simple and quick access to mindfulness. I love sharing my passion for Zentangle. I love both for the beauty of the artwork itself and the added benefits of relaxation, reducing anxiety, helping with insomnia, helping manage chronic pain, ...... the list goes on!

This was an awesome class. I love that every single one of Niki’s classes I come out with beautiful art that I’m proud of. The stacked rocks was a particularly interesting and enjoyable type of Zentangle art. I liked that I could draw on my previous Zentangle skills in this class but the way Niki walks you through everything each time is a great refresher and means you don’t need to have any prior skills. I loved the way also in this class we were stepped through the process from creating our zigzag lines to the rocks to adding tangles to the shading at the end which really made the rocks come to life. Such a lovely and relaxing evening!

Another amazing glass by Niki.

Niki has such a great laid back teaching style. I loved learning new techniques and ways to Zentangle. It was like a 2 hour meditation.

Niki explains things so well and makes her classes a lot of fun. This project was so easy and I had a beautiful piece of art without a great deal of effort.
