Event description

Description

Beyond the Basics builds on the foundation of the Zentangle techniques taught in my Introduction to Zentangle workshop. This would also be suitable for people who have dabbled in tangling and want to try more, need a refresher, or just want to be in the company of fellow likeminded tanglers!

It is not recommended to jump straight into Beyond the Basics if it is your first experience of trying Zentangle.

This adult workshop will:

  • Build on the basics of Zentangle you already know, to help you progress

  • Introduce additional tangles to add drama and impact to your growing pattern library

  • Experiment with embellishment, enhancement and colour

  • Include a fun project which showcases your new skills


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:

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

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

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.

Take Homes:
I offer an optional Starter Kit to take home at a cost of an additional £6.50. As this is not your first experience of Zentangle, you may already have supplies, but it is nice to offer. The kit includes 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 and Sakura Pigma Micron PN (plastic nib) pens for £3. 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 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.

What age group is this workshop suitable for?
Suitable for 14 years old upwards. I also run separate children's events, usually in the school holidays.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Please email any questions to june@baileyart.co.uk, message me via my Facebook page www.facebook.com/baileyartuk or send a text to 07949 708 659. Thanks!
