In this live online class, we will use Zentangle “tangles” (patterns) and techniques to hand draw and then embellish letters of the alphabet. These make beautiful personalised artworks for yourself or a gift for someone else.

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.

There are no mistakes in Zentangle so you will hopefully also finish up this two-hour online class, feeling super 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!

Even when you do a class more than once, it's always different, with new things to learn & old skills to perfect.

Lovely class and great way to have time out for myself with a relaxing evening in the middle of a busy week. This class is perfect for all Zentangle abilities, beginners or experienced as we used basic patterns but created an awesome effect to embed the letters. Always love Zentangle classes with Niki!

I really enjoyed the class. I’d never done Zentangle before, or taken any kind of art or craft class over Zoom before, but I’m glad I did! I felt welcome and was able to keep up despite my lack of experience and despite not having all the fancy materials. (I signed up a few days before the class and didn’t want to risk my box not arriving in time, so I just made sure I had the right kind of fineliner and the other suggested materials.)

I particularly appreciated Niki’s step-by-step instructions and demonstrations; it was easy to watch and follow what she was doing on her screen. I enjoyed learning about the different patterns and what they would be useful for, and appreciated that Niki wrote out all the names for us — I don’t think I would have been able to spell them correctly if I’d just been going by what I heard!

A great intimate class. As a newbie to the art form all my lines looked crooked but I was encouraged to trust and the outcome proved that. Will book another.

I signed up for this class after attending one of Niki's free lunchtime classes introducing Zentangle. The class was easy to follow along and I was happy with the result of my first letter. Looking forward to using what I have learnt to create some beautiful personal cards for special occasions. Thanks Niki for a great afternoon - made Sydney's lockdown just a little bit easier this weekend.

Great class Niki guided us step by step, but still giving us freedom to create our personal artwork.
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

Thanks, Nikki! Initially I was overwhelmed by the patterns Nikki was showing, as they seemed so complicated and elaborate. But with step by step instructions and lots of reassurance, we were all able to produce an amazingly detailed tile! I'm keen to keep practicing, and very keen to try the other classes Nikki runs.

Niki is a great teacher. This was my 2nd class with her and I will definitely do more. Her work is very impressive. Nikki goes above and beyond, even contacting me to remind me that the session had started. Thank you Niki.

Loved this class, Niki was really patient and very knowledgeable. She showed me lots of techniques and tips I'd never seen before. Highly recommended, particularly for these rainy lockdown days in Melbourne.

Lia Harman Aug 2020


It's our company's 11th birthday today. Our team would normally come together to celebrate, but due to Covid we were spread across 3 states and wanted to do something as a team that would allow us to relax, spend time together mindfully and create something lovely. Niki ran a wonderful Zentangle session for us on Zoom; she explained the processes well, was patient with those of us who were not quite so good at drawing straight lines! And showed us many different patterns and methods that we are all excited to go away and use. Highly recommended team activity!
