What is Zentangle?

The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. "Zentangle" is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Zentangle or 'tangling' involves creating intricate patterns and designs through structured, repetitive strokes. This practice promotes mindfulness and relaxation by encouraging a focus on the present moment. By immersing oneself in the deliberate creation of these abstract patterns, individuals often experience reduced stress and anxiety, enhanced concentration, and an overall sense of calm and well-being. Tangling is an accessible and non-intimidating approach to art that allows individuals, with no artistic background, to engage in a creative process that nurtures self-expression and self-discovery. With an ethos of 'no mistakes', it is non judgmental and not competitive.


What do I need to start

Just bring you! Your focus on yourself for the time you have set aside to immerse yourself and create something new. The minimum equipment is a pen, pencil and something to draw on. There are no mistakes, so no eraser is needed. Zentangle making uses small, sometimes tiny squares of paper, usually less than 10cm square. You will be given supplies at your session You can buy official Zentangle products direct from your teacher, or from the For online classes a very easy to get equipment list will be sent in advance.


Why use a CZT?

A teacher in the Zentangle method (CZT) provides guidance and allows the sharing of techniques, fostering a supportive and collaborative atmosphere. This combined approach creates a holistic learning experience that imparts skills and a sense of shared creative exploration. A CZT offers structure, and tips and techniques to get the most out of turning this practice into something you can do easily at home with free resources available to you. You can join a group that meets once a month, a one off session on a particular tangle, or design, or simply a course that introduces you to the key concepts which you can develop into your unique style. ​
