What is Zentangle® ?

The Zentangle Method was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. We refer to these patterns as tangles and they are formed with combinations of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves and orbs. Together this selection of shapes form the Elemental Strokes used in Zentangle art, and are drawn on small pieces of paper called "tiles" - appropriately named, because they can be assembled into gorgeous mosaics.

Beautiful and satisfying results are achievable for absolutely everyone - all you need is the desire to have a go, and a little self-belief! All materials are provided for use during the workshop.

Zentangle is a calming and unrushed activity and has a positive influence on mental health, creativity, problem solving and focus. It is accessible to everyone, children and adults alike, and is mindful, intuitive, timeless, portable and most importantly – FUN! There are no prizes for finishing first, it is all about slowing down, giving your brain a break and relaxing, enjoying the process and admiring the results.

The simple step-by-step method is easy to pick up and inexpensive to continue with at home.

Things to consider:

Who is running this workshop?
My name is June Bailey and I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher (qualified June 2018). I am DBS checked, friendly and encouraging - I will look after you! This is a small capacity workshop (maximum 5 attendees).

What do I need to bring with me?
All materials are provided.
If you wear glasses for reading/close work please bring them with you!
It is possible that you may get a little inky so don't wear your very best clothes.

Access:
The shop is up a flight of external stairs, so unsuitable for wheelchair access. If you require a venue with wheelchair access, please look at my other workshops - I frequently run them at The Old Brewery Function Room in Marlow which has full access and a disabled toilet.

Timings:
This is a full two-hour workshop, so please arrive a little early to make yourself comfortable and grab a drink before we begin.

Refreshments:
Complimentary tea and coffee will be available at the beginning and halfway through the workshop.

Take Homes:
I offer an optional Starter Kit to take home at a cost of an additional £6.50. This will include 2 Sakura Pigma Micron pens (01 and 08 nibs), pencil, a small selection of tiles, and a tortillon (smudger). I also offer packs of 10 hand cut tiles for £2. If you would like to purchase any of these, card payments are preferred but please bring along the correct money if you'd rather pay in cash.

Car Parking:
There is ample car parking in the driveway of the Wendy House.

FAQs:

What age group is this workshop suitable for?
Suitable for 14 years old upwards. I also run separate children's events.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Please email any questions to june@baileyart.co.uk or text to 07949 708 659. Thanks!
