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 has unwrapped the secret of drawing beautiful flowers. It’s easy once she shows you how. She’s an excellent teacher.

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

Loved my first class and will be doing more. Niki explains and demonstrates clearly and patiently. I can’t believe I’ve created such beautiful designs in so short a time.

Absolutely loved this class! I’ve nearly done all of Niki’s zentangle classes, all of which have been brilliant. She explains the process so well and makes it easy to follow. Thank you for a great class.
