This is a ClassBento virtual Live/Box class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or enjoy with like-minded others. Our Live/Box classes have been featured on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Vogue, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Book or Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft kit containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and it should arrive within 2 to 4 business days for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra; 4 to 9 days elsewhere. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. After booking, you'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. At the time of the class, use that link to join. During the class, you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

In this live online class, you will learn how to draw and shade these gorgeous circular creations using Zentangle® patterns.

In this live streaming class, you will learn about "Reticula" (the grids we draw within) and "Fragments" (the small patterns we fill the grids with). Zenbuttons are inspired by Marguerite Samama CZT and are so much fun to play around with!

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 improves fine motor skills, relieves stress and is great for virtual team building.

There are no mistakes in Zentangle so you should also finish up feeling relaxed and refreshed!

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!

A relaxing way to spend a few hours exploring new and extending old Zentangle techniques. Thanks Niki.

The class was a birthday gift, excellent idea, took class with my sister and we have been sending each other our designs back and forth since the class. The style gave me insights into my hand movements when drawing, to let the paper move instead of my arms. Very interesting.

Loved the Zentangle buttons class today. Understanding the shading effect to give perspective and hilighting though use of crayon. Look forward to more classes. Nikki was fun and informative as usual. Small class size was a bonus.
