2018 CZT-Asia Seminars in Taipei and Shanghai

We are thrilled and honored to inform our Asian Zentangle community tanglers that this year, CZT-Asia will be available in Taipei and in Shanghai.

CZT-Asia #6 Seminar Students

We have teamed up with the great lineup of CZTs at Created With Love (CWL) in Taiwan, to make our CZT seminars available in the Mandarin language and in locations that are nearer to students' homes.

We are excited that this year two of the four CZT-Asia seminars will be held in Shanghai. There is great interest and enthusiasm for the Zentangle Method in China. Now people in China can also gain a deeper understanding of the Zentangle Method and how to best teach it to others.

If you are interested in attending, please contact the CWL team at the links below. These classes have already been announced locally and seats are filling fast.

The Mandarin CZT-Asia seminars are tailored to mirror the English seminars that we put on in Providence, RI, USA. CZT-Asia graduates are listed on our website and have the same support and privileges as US trained CZTs.

And . . . we know that many CZTs also love to return to these seminars, both in Asia and in the US, to refresh, recharge and renew friendships.

We look forward to welcoming you into the Zentangle family as CZTs!

Nature Tangles

Many of our tangles are inspired by patterns in nature. Recently we encountered two amazing examples!

Just after Maria had done her #articulatedmolygon presentation on the Zentangle Mosaic app and posted this tile . . .

 . . we went to this crazy cool store in nearby Worcester called Seed to Stem . While there, we bought the small fossil of a sea creature that you can see on the tile below. Apparently nature had been tangling #molygon for millennia!

And for a closer look:


Next up is a live tangling demonstration by the amazing Puffer Fish. The male Puffer Fish will "tangle" 24 hours a day for a week. He will move about 200 times his body weight in sand and carefully arrange shells and pebbles throughout his creation. 

After you watch this video, check out the many "Puffer Fish nests" images online.
