Craft: Zentangle Printing

Using a chosen zentangle pattern from last lesson, children create a reverse system print process by transferring their design onto a polyprint tile, using a pen to create a deep line and then printing onto fabric, repeating the print process to create a pattern

Learning Objectives

  • Knowing how to transfer my drawn zentangle pattern onto a polyprint/polystyrene tile

  • Knowing that this method creates a reverse system where imprinted lines will become white and the background will be the colour of the ink used

  • Applying an even layer of ink onto the tile

  • Creating a repeat pattern onto fabric
