Zenjangle doodling is easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun and it allows you the freedom to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns that are a combination of dots, lines, and simple curves. These simple stokes create beautiful patterns and all you need is a pen and a piece of paper to have a go. You don't need to think about what a Zenjangle is going to look like to draw it, you just need to follow the simple steps, there is no right or wrong way to Zenjangle and every mark made is meant to be, if you feel you have made a mistake use them as inspiration to create your own version of the patterns. In  Zenjangling every mark made is your own personal take on creating the patterns and traditionally these are made by using black fine liners and not pencil so there is no rubbing out.

In this workshop you will explore the world of Zenjangle, the basics on how to start creating the patterns and how to make beautiful drawings from just using a fine liner.  There will be a range of resources for you to look at, and you will come away from the workshop with your first Zenjangled picture and a copy of all the patterns

In this workshop you will explore the world of Zenjangle using Mandalas and it an extension of the Zenjangle Doodling Workshop. The session includes creating beautiful Mandalas using stencils and including how to turn the negative spaces the stencil creates into a full mandala using simple steps and then filling them in with Zenjangle patterns.

Many studies have looked into the role that creativity can play in reducing anxiety and enhancing your mood. Compared with colouring a blank page, 20 minutes of colouring a mandala is more effective at reducing anxiety. The complexity and structure of the mandalas designs are what can   simulate a meditative state of mind that helps to reduce anxiety.
