The Zentangle Method is enjoyed all over this world across a wide range of skills, interests and ages.


Gillian McAuliffe is a Certified Zentangle Teacher would be delighted to introduce you to the Art of Zentangle.

I have loved zentangling together as a group in your warm and welcoming space. It has not only given me a broader understanding and repertoire of zentangles but it is also a great way to connect and spend time with friends. It has given me extra confidence to try out new things in the classroom with the children and I know that when school holiday time comes around I will carve out some quiet time to tangle just for me. I never really thought of myself as someone who could create art but now I can happily say that I have changed that belief thanks to our Tangle Tuesdays! So thank you for giving us your time and knowledge and making it fun and welcoming.

Workshops in Action

Trudi and Daniel from Educated by Nature chat to their mentor Gillian McAuliffe, founder of Bold Park Community School, about the need for both adults and children to have times of stillness. While they use Zentangle to do a mind reset themselves, they discuss how stillness in nature supports learning in a fast-paced world.
