Zentangle® Basics Workshop



Zentangle Basics

Zentangle Basics

This is the first in a series of classes focusing on the easy, fun, meditative art form known as Zentangle®, and it is the prerequisite for all my other Zentangle Classes. If you have taken Basics from another teacher, please contact me to see about waiving this requirement.

In this class, we will learn what Zentangle® is and how to use it to create small, beautiful works of art using an archival felt tipped pen and very fine, high quality papers. We will also cover the Zentangle philosophy, in which there are no mistakes, and we will focus on completing one pen stroke at a time. You will learn seven structured patterns (called “tangles”), which will used to create small pieces of art. The workshop is about 2 hours long and is held in Santa Rosa.

NEW IN 2016: The class now includes examples of tiles you can complete with the tangles you learned in class, so you will leave with a series of samples ready for you to work with.

The cost is $43.00, and it includes a mini Zentangle  kit, which is yours to keep.

To find current Zentangle® Basics Class Offerings, go to the Full Class Listing page.

You can also call me at (707) 546-4550 if you have any questions, or if you want to reserve your spot in one of these workshops. Prepayment is required in the form of a check mailed to my studio.

  1. I’d love to sign up for the class next Wed. Evening the 15th. Do we pay in advance or at the class?


    • Thanks for your interest, Rhonda, and I’m sorry it took so long to get back to you (we were camping this weekend).

      Usually folks pay in advance but since we are so close to the class, you can bring a check with you. Please let me know if you are a definite yes!


  2. I’m interested in future classes. Please let me know when you have dates available.
    Thank you.

    • HI, Gloria,

      I have several basics classes scheduled. The best way to keep up on classes it to sign up for my email list. Would you like me to add you to it?

  3. Hi Debbie, I would like to sign up for The January 20th class at 6:15 Where do I mail my payment to?

    Happy New Year

  4. I thoroughly enjoyed my Zentangle Basics class. I never would have attempted them, but with Debbie’s calm and encouraging instructions, we left feeling excited and confident and ready for more classes!

  5. I would like to attend May 20th class. Will hopefully bring a friend or two. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back from them.

    • I have you and Teresa down. I’ll be adding a couple Zentangle afternoon classes, too. I’ll let you know once I finalize the classes. Thanks for your interest!

  6. The basic Zentangle class was excellent. I told Deborah that I certainly did get my money’s worth! She explains everything step by step, no rushing, no mistakes (!), and with the huge monitor that allow the student to see her demonstration close up, she is very easy to follow. I really appreciated getting a kit included with the class that allowed me to get started at home after the class without having to purchase any new equipment immediately.

    • Thanks, Terry! I’m glad you had a good time, and I hope you are tangling to your heart’s content!
