Introduction to Zentangle® Workshop

Even if you don’t consider yourself an artist you will quickly learn how to create beautiful abstract images using structured patterns. The patterns will be broken down for you so that by the end of the workshop you will have two completed images to take home with you. Zentangle® improves focus, builds confidence and is fun. Many people report that it puts them in a meditative, relaxed state – the “zen” in Zentangle.

Zentangle® Meets Mandala: Zendala 1 Workshop

Relax and slow down through the art of Zentangle with a new twist: circular cut paper tiles. The Zendala tiles, about 4.5″ in diameter are die cut and made from the same paper as the square white tiles.

The workshop begins with a pre-strung tile to take away any guess-work on how to start. For our second Zendala we use a template and transfer a design onto a blank tile.

Eight tangles not covered in previous workshops will be introduced.

Extra tiles to complete additional works of art are included.

Please bring your mini-kit from Introduction to Zentangle, all other supplies included. Pens, pencils and tortillions will be available for purchase if needed.
