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!

Niki is a great teacher and this was an excellent class. Clear instructions, good pace and I just really love Zentangle in general!

Drawing workshop review by Vicki

Monika Dryburgh Mar 2022


This was fantastic as always. I really appreciated that Niki went to the trouble of designing a whole second tile to teach us. I particularly appreciated Niki showing us some of her sources of inspiration as we went along.

It was great learning the new tangle patterns, being reminded of familiar ones, and practicing shading to really make those buttons pop!

Another great class with Niki. This time exploring reticulas and fragments. Loved how each tile can look different depending what fragment in each space.

Oh how much I loved this class

I loved how Niki took us through stages where each time I was proud of my work, then she would show us the next step and was blown away with how much more beautiful the artwork was!

The final 3D effect is awesome to look at from all angles and I am obsessed with the finished artwork!

My only suggestions to maximise class time/give students even more patterns to play with later is to start the class with a bunch of fragments on the tiny tiles, then in the second/final part of the class focus on the artwork itself. It would also be great if students could be given the dimensions of the circular tile (I’m personally too obsessed with perfecting baselines), to help them find the centre of the circle for the protractor.

I couldn’t recommend this class more due to how unique the content and artwork is, the way that Niki adapts to student needs and their feedback and how special it is to watch your own drawing transform in real-time!

This class was brilliant, even managed to get the shading right for the first time ever thanks to Niki's great tuition.

This was a great class. Loved learning about the fragments to put in our zendala - after spending so much time on regular tangle patterns in previous classes, it was awesome to expand my Zentangle skills this way. The button effect is so cool too. Thanks Niki for another lovely class

Really appreciate having something pleasant and relaxing to be absorbed in for two hours; an excellent break from the stresses of pandemic life.

As always, I appreciate that Niki shares the names of the patterns, what they look like when they’re finished (and different applications and options for details) as well as showing us how to draw them step-by-step.

Knowing that Niki will happily slow down or demonstrate something again if I missed something the first time really takes the pressure off.

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

Trish Kennett Nov 2020


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.

Again Niki has provided great ideas, clear instructions, great feedback and time to create my own zendala.
Many thanks
