2 hours Class size 2 to 16     label $60 - $70 ($60 for Class only, no box, $70 for Class and box)


This is a ClassBento virtual Live/Box class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or enjoy with like-minded others. Our Live/Box classes have been featured on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Vogue, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft kit 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. After booking, you'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. At the time of the class, use that link to join. During the class, you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

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!

Had a wonderful afternoon with Niki learning such a wonderful new skill. Niki was friendly, attentive and down to earth and I enjoyed every minute of the class.

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.

What an enjoyable way to spend mother & son time together during Melbourne lockdown! The kit we received was cute & I have a new mindfulness technique that fits right in my handbag! Thanks Niki & ClassBento.

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.

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!
