If you love blue and white china then you will love this online class! Using Zentangle patterns we will pay tribute to the many different kinds of blue and white ceramics throughout history and create two separate pieces with ink and paper.

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.

Zentangle is also a fantastic stress reliever which makes it a unique option for virtual team building activities. Create beautiful art, one pen stroke at a time!

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!

What a lovely way to spend the afternoon. Niki provided lots of clear instructions breaking down each step and she allowed plenty of time for them to be completed. I never felt rushed or pressured to move on quickly which made the class very relaxing. For a beginner I’m very pleased with what I achieved. Thank you Niki and I look forward to do another of your classes soon.

Great class. I loved the kit with all the blue goodies. It was fun exploring the different blues during the class. I learnt new tangles as always but also used my previous Zentangle experience to build on and of course deepen my Zentangle obsession. Keen to use the blue and white ideas on some more tiles in my own time as it has a really nice look

My box arrived on Friday (phew!) and it was lovely to be able to use all the different blue fine liners and pencils as instructed. I really appreciate the way Niki explains how to draw each pattern, as well as showing what the process and the finished version look like via her camera.

I got really absorbed in the process; two hours went by like no time at all!

An excellent online workshop. Niki clearly nd patiently takes the group through creting a 'plate' zentagles design then introduces you to a second design. All required supplies are posted out before hand. I will definitely look into more classes by Niki - highly recommend

This was one of the more challenging Zentangle class but Niki explained things clearly and I was able to finish two beautiful tiles using colour. I can’t wait to do more zentangle classes.

It would be nice to be provided a photo of the finished product as we need a reference. I don’t think the email has a photo you can look back on.
I loved the class.

Nikki was great at breaking everything down step by step. I was happy with what I was able to produce by the end of the class, especially with no real experience!

Another brilliant and unique class, this time we did china blue, it was great to use a different colour & shape to the usual. It was a bit harder than some of the others but it was great to be challenged.
