Art and craft classes and workshops in Essex.
What is Zentangle®?
The creators of Zentangle, Rick & Maria, say “The Zentangle method is an easy to learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns which are called ‘Tangles’ “. When attending a class with a Certified Zentangle Teacher, called a CZT, you will be shown how to create ‘Tangles’ using very basic shapes which everybody can draw onto Tiles, which are small pieces of paper. By focusing on one stroke of the pen at a time you will slow down and focus on drawing the ‘Tangles’. During this class each student will be shown the process from start to finish and will take home their own Tiles to display.
A little bit about your tutor, Hannah Geddes
I have been a CZT since 2014 and since then have taught a lot of people all over Europe with different backgrounds, ways of life, health conditions etc and am overjoyed when I see the reaction of people learning Zentangle. I’ve seen the benefits for children with ADHD, adults suffering from stress management, groups in schools, retirement villages, social workers for the council, all of which have gained a benefit of slowing down using ‘One stroke at a time’.
I have written several books and magazine articles and have worked on the live TV craft show Hochanda, which I really enjoyed.
