How to draw WARRE

Zentangle pattern: Warre. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Warre is our second tangle of the day from Australian Helen Williams and it too is a triangle grid-based tangle.

Earlier today we added her Queen B tangle to our resource and noted, “Helen explains that a few years ago she’d taken a course on ‘Natural Beekeeping’ and recently re-discovered her notes included these patterns which she has since deconstructed for us to enjoy.”

So here’s what I’ve recently learned about beekeeping, and the name Warré (pronounced: WAR-ray).

The Warré Hive was invented by a French monk, Abbot Émile Warré.

He is most well known as the inventor of the People’s Hive (la Ruche Populaire in French).

By 1948, Warré had been practicing beekeeping for over thirty years and had 350 hives in his apiary with a variety of models which he compared for over 15 years.

After extensive research, he designed the People’s Hive. The goal was to create a hive that was as close to the natural conditions for the bees while remaining practical for the beekeeper. It was also designed to be built economically by anyone with simple tools and his book, L’Apiculture Pour Tous.

From beebuilt.com:

He studied hundreds of different hive styles and settled on this one as the most ideal for bees and beekeeper.

His design focused on simplicity, ease of management, and mimicry of honeybees’ ideal natural environment.

This hive is a vertically stacking top bar hive that incorporates natural comb and the retention of nest scent and heat.

So there we have it, the People’s Hive. Warré.

Warre the tangle has a bit of an Art Deco feel to it in my mind, and like Queen B it looks quite different depending on where you add graphite and/or solid areas in the pattern. And as you may have guessed, my example is “sideways”.

Helen illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Warre here on her blog where you’ll also find her Queen B tangle.

As you enjoy any of the tangles on the site, please leave a comment of thanks and encouragement to show the artists you appreciate them for sharing their creativity to inspire yours. Your thanks helps motivate them to continue to share!
