What is Zentangle®?

Zentangle® is a relaxing, fun and easy drawing method where beautiful repetitive shapes, or ‘tangles’, are created by drawing dots, lines, curves, and other shapes, creating a sense of mindfulness and relieving stress and anxiety. 


The Zentangle method helps people of all ages, interests and skills experience calm, confidence and positive mental health. 


It is also a perfect way for those who have never drawn before to exercise creativity.

Zentangle is an excellent self-care tool for our increasingly busy lives.

Inside the Community

The Zentangle Method has a worldwide following, and the internet is filled with workshops, videos and inspirational ideas 

that can feel overwhelming (some of the art on Pinterest in phenomenal!)


but sometimes, knowing where to start is the greatest barrier to overcome


I want to create a community that uses Zentangle as a quick, accessible and easy to follow way to reduce anxiety, calm the mind 

and access self-care.

Gain confidence on your 

creative journey

Are you creative at heart, but feel like 

you can't "draw?" 


When we compare ourselves to more experienced Zentangle artists, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and confused.  


How can you make progress without clear direction, guidance and support?


Our short lessons provide ideas, tips and tricks that will take you from:

"what shall I do?"  to: 

"Look what I've created!"

 Feel calmer and improve 

your mental health

Do you often put the needs of others 

ahead of your own?


It can be hard to practice self-care when our "to-do list" is pages long.  Sometimes, taking a break can seem selfish, frivilous or just an impossibility


However, prioritising a few minutes of creativity can calm our minds, reduce stress and recharge our batteries

Improved mental health means we can better help those around us  


You can't pour from an empty cup

Build a community that will support you and cheer you on

Do you want to be part of a community that can support you on your creative journey?


The Playful Tanglers Community is just starting out,  and we are looking for a small handful of founding members to contribute ideas on how to make this the BEST space possible


Our one live workshop a month will bring us together for a creative evening of tangling, while our private facebook group will provide ongoing support to ask questions, share ideas and display our art with pride

The Playful Tangler Community launched in May 2022 to a small amount of founding members


The doors will open again Summer 2022

Hello, I'm Natalie!

I'm an Accredited Play Therapist and Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) based in London, UK


I love using play and the creative arts to bring playfulness and creativity into the world! 


I stumbled across Zentangle about 10 years ago, loved it, became obsessed with it, but then life got in the way, and I forgot all about it.


Fast-forward to the 2020 lockdown and pandemic. Along with many in the world, the loss of freedom affected me, and I started looking for ways to improve my mental health which is when I rediscovered Zentangle!


I tried TONS of creative and artistic hobbies and activities, but it was the simplicity of Zentangle that stuck. Whenever I felt stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed, all I needed was a pen and some paper to calm me down.


Fast-forward to the 2020 lockdown and pandemic. Along with many in the world, the loss of freedom affected me, and I started looking for ways to improve my mental health  I rediscovered Zentangle! to create The Playful Tanglers Community

I'm new to Zentangle, will this work for me?

Absolutely! 

My quick tangle tutorials are easy to follow along to and are perfect for beginners who are looking for direction.  


Each time I teach a new tangle, I also share ways that you could extend the pattern, so if you are not-so-new to Zentangle, there are opportunities for you to play around with tangles you may already be familiar with 

How are the lessons taught?

All content is hosted on a closed platform and once enrolled, each member is given their own login details 


Each week a short video (5 - 10 minutes) is release which will either teach a new tangle or provide Zentangle tips and tricks  


Our monthly masterclass is a pre-recorded video and will be available at the beginning of the month.  However, if you don't have the time to watch this video, the masterclass will also be taught during a live Zoom workshop where you can ask questions, follow along and carve out time just for you

I am not sure I have the time for this

The Playful Tanglers Community is designed for busy women who are looking for quick creative wins.


You can access the lessons on any device at a time that works for you. and there is no requirement to keep up with everything   


They are stand along lessons, so you can dip in and out of the videos, and only draw the tangles that appeal to you.

How do the payments work?

The Playful Tanglers Community is a monthly subscription.  

Payments are automatically deducted from the payment method you choose at sign-up on the same date every month until cancelled. 


Like Netflix or any other subscription, once cancelled, you will no longer have access to any of the lessons, videos or content


Please note, that due to this being a digital service, all payments made are non-refundable 

What if I join and it's not for me?

Members can cancel at any time, so if you realise it isn't for you, I'll be sad to see you go, but there is no obligation to remain. 


If you do leave and decide to come back at a later date, you will have to re-enrol once the doors open again (only a few times a year) and will have to pay the current price point

Will my payment price increase?

One of the benefits of joining earlier rather than later is that you lock in the cost at which you join. Founding 

Members will benefit from the cheapest price plan it will ever be.


As the library grows and the value grows, the cost of the membership will increase but your monthly cost will stay the same as long as your payments are in good standing and you have not cancelled.

What is your refund and cancellation policy?

You can cancel your membership at any time. Due to the digital nature of the membership, refunds will not be made for months already paid.


This is a subscription service that will be billed monthly or yearly (depending on what you choose at checkout).


If you wish to cancel, you must do so before your next billing date which will be the same day each month. Please make note of the day of the month (or year) that your membership renews. Refunds are not granted once the payment has gone through.


Member's pricing gets locked in at the time they become a member. If you cancel and return in the future, you'll be subject to whatever price the membership is at that time.


Once you cancel you will no longer have access to any of the content on the membership and you will lose access to the membership site and the exclusive Facebook group.


This membership is for PERSONAL use, not for agencies or companies, and is not to be shared.

What happens after I join?

You will receive an email welcoming you into the community and it will give you all the information you need to know to get started 


Once you are in the community, you will have access to all the tangles, tutorials and workshops that have been taught previously
