Zendalas with Becky

Zendala is the hybrid art of a Mandala circle & Zentangle art. They are the perfect stress reliever. At this workshop, we'll learn how to make "tangle" patterns and how to incorporate them into zentangles and zendalas.

Creating zendalas teach us patience. The practice of concentrating and reproducing detailed patterns causes the mind to slow down and allow the time it takes to create the balanced patterns in mandalas. It's a great exercise to help us slow down and relax.
