❋ my workshop resource page

This is the linked version of a list I've created to give to people who come to my workshops. I want the people who learn from me to come away with the same sense of excitement I had after my first experience with Zentangle, thirsty for information and overwhelmed by the possibilities in the patterns all around them. My goal is to offer them the best and most helpful information that I possibly can, so they have a solid foundation for continuing their Zentangle journey once we part ways. Seven months ago, I had never even heard of Zentangle, and it's already changed my life. I believe it can benefit the people who embrace it, and who wouldn't want to be a part of that?

This list will be updated from time to time as new things are added. If you have any suggestions for additions please leave them in the comments section. Thanks!
