This is a ClassBento LiveBox class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or just enjoy with some like-minded others. As seen on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, 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 box 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. You'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. On the day of the class, use that link to join the class. Class sizes are kept small, so you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device - smartphone, tablet or laptop. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

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 team building.

In this live online class, you will learn a brief history of Zentangle and then we will work through the eight steps of the Zentangle Method. As well as learning the basic terminology and techniques that are used in Zentangle, you will be introduced to several “tangles” (patterns) that you will use to create little pieces of art.

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

I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT). 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 well-planned class with a clear structure and content. Niki's class is an enjoyable way to spend a few hours of your day, and opens the door to more relaxing drawing time in the future. Friends or family would enjoy doing this together (especially in Melbourne right now), as Niki's teaching style creates an opportunity for people spend some quiet time creating together and as individuals. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and skills, Niki. :)

This was a great class - loved it. Thankyou so much
A simple PDF summary would have been brilliant!

Anita Tang • May 2020


This was a lovely way to spend the afternoon doing an intergenerational activity across state borders. Niki has been really responsive from the moment we booked, helping untangle a booking error on my part, and making sure one of our kits was redirected.

This is a really convenient way to learn something new - everything needed was in the kit, and we were really pleased with what we were able to produce in a short time.

Highly recommend!

Rachel Smiles • May 2020


I thoroughly enjoyed this class. The pace was great - slow enough so you could take it all in, and relax with, but fast enough so you could create some beautiful designs. Such a wonderful idea, and a fun class to do with some friends or on your own. The teacher was absolutely excellent and explains herself so well.
