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!

Thanks to Niki as always. I appreciated all the little details and options for things as simple as borders and ornaments in corners and choosing to leave some spaces blank. (And after several days of practicing Henna Drum last year, I can finally draw it! )

Great introduction to Zen Tangle by Nikki. Despite having only an hour, she was able to squeeze in the basics of Zen Tangle and we got to practice techniques. Amazing job Nikki! Would recommend to people who have been wanting to try out Zen Tangle!

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  + more

I really enjoyed this class because it was such a unique take on using Zentangle! The use of colour with white charcoal was new and challenging for me but with practice and the skills Niki gave me I’m found to be able to create new artworks with these foundations from the class. I’m not sure if the produced artwork will be a gift or be hung on the wall, but no matter any skill level you leave  + more

Thank you Niki and I look forward to do another of your classes soon.

Niki was amazing, and is just so personable. Her passion for Zentangle really just shines through. It was great going through it step by step with her. She gave me the history of Zentangle, taught me some techniques then pointed me in the right direction for further learning and how to top up with supplies. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Monday evening. I can already feel an addiction  + more

I was anxious before the class about drawing straight with a pen, as I get nervous about making mistakes and then hating the artwork. But during this class, that anxiety just went away and I was in such a zone creating the zen patterns. HIGHLY recommend this class! Thanks Niki
