Zentangles are a fun, easy-to-learn, way to relax while creating beautiful, hand-drawn images. Drawing a Zentangle is a form of meditation that increases your focus and creativity through the drawing of structured patterns. Almost anyone can do it and the practice is known for providing both artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of well being.
At first glance, a Zentangle can seem very intricate and complicated. Once you learn the Zentangle method, however, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easy, fun, and engrossing they are to create. Almost anyone can use the Zentangle method to create beautiful images.The Zentangle method is not just a fancy way to doodle, though it can look like that. When you doodle, you tend to be distracted by something else – a phone call, a meeting, etc. With Zentangles, you draw each stroke consciously and deliberately, yet there is no predetermined image and no erasing. Zentangle drawings are typically 3.5 inch square, abstract, black on white patterns created following a basic set of guidelines.
Tangle and Sip Berkshires Zentangle Workshop at Brook Farm Inn
Our November 4th Tangle and Sip Berkshires Zentangle Workshop will introduce you to the Zentangle method through instructor Laura Marks.

The Tangle and Sip Berkshires Zentangle Workshop includes your very own Zentangle kit: micron pen, pencil, tortillon blending tool, tile, and muslin pouch. Laura Marks will talk on the origins and benefits of Zentangle, the basic elements of the Zentangle method, and then you’ll create your own tile using four tangles. You’ll also receive coffee or wine (your choice) to sip on as well as incorporate into your drawing!
