ONLINE The Zentangle® Method: Christmas Nutcracker - Fri 8th December 2023 at 2pm
BOOKING DEADLINE: Fri 24th November at 12pm UK TIME
Due to the interactive nature of this workshop, we would encourage students to participate live and work along with the tutor, if possible.
A video playback service will still be provided to all students for 60 days.
Fri 8th December 2pm - 3:30pm
This LivePlus™ online class is ideal for those who have attended Sheila's previous classes but is also very accessible to complete tangling beginners. This is a work-along workshop and so we would encourage students to have their materials to hand, ready to participate live during the class.
Join us for this festive one-off Zentangle® Art class - hosted by Ardington ONLINE and led by Certified Zentangle® Teacher, Sheila Murray. A perfect opportunity to step out of your daily routine and immerse yourself in the world of tangling - relaxation and creativity at their best!
Join us as we work with templates for the Nutcracker Soldier. This is a real favourite to create cards and framed pictures. Using the Zentangle® Method we will use a variety of tangles to enhance our soldier design. We can add colour and maybe a little bit of gold to add our own features and ideas.
Differing slightly from our usual LivePlus™ format, students are encouraged to tangle along live to gain the most from the process. To enable you to practice again in your own time, the session will be recorded, and each new tangle will be accompanied by written notes as an aide memoire.
Specific skills you will learn at the workshop
- The Zentangle® Method terminology
- Tangle styles and how to draw them
- Shading and colour techniques to enhance the tangles

All Ardington ONLINE classes and talks are accompanied by their own online blackboard. Helpful and easy to use, they enable students and tutors to share resources, ideas and photos with each other – just as you would in a classroom environment.
Sheila will offer personalised critique / feedback via the blackboard for any work uploaded by students within thirty days of the class ending. You will be sent the link to access your blackboard in the week before your class begins and will have access for at least sixty days after the class ends.
After the live session has finished on Zoom, we will share the link to view the recording on the blackboard. You can watch the recording as many times as you like for sixty days.
We suggest that you do not buy any specialist materials more than one week in advance as, occasionally, a class may be cancelled due to low enrolment.
