Zentangle Project Pack #03

Our goal with the Zentangle Project Pack series is to make some tips, techniques and philosophies about the Zentangle Method available via video tutorials. Along with the video instruction, we will make the necessary Zentangle tools and tiles available for purchase as a Project Pack prior to the release of the video. 

We will disclose the theme of the Project Pack but not the exact contents . . . because we love the idea of a little element of surprise. We will also announce the needed materials in the videos when it's released if you decide not to purchase the Project Pack.      

We will announce the links to the videos for this Project Pack on June 9th in a newsletter. 

Zentangle  Project Pack #03 includes all the tangling supplies to tangle with us and create a Zentangle Ensemble. Enjoy following along with multiple mini tutorials that contribute to the same finished piece. This Project Pack will focus on borders, and fragments. It also introduces a fun way to add color to your Zentangle art. 

General's® Kimberly Watercolor Pencil Set

If you enjoy adding a splash of color to your tangled art we are thrilled to offer a beautiful set of pencils from our friends at General Pencil. 

Since their origin in 1930, General's Kimberly Watercolor pencils have been created from the finest artist pigments. Ideal for adding color to your tangled creations. Experiment with using them before or after tangling with a Micron pen. Add a washed look with a wet brush. Made with genuine Incense Cedar wood. This set is complete with 12 assorted colors.


Hmm . . . wonder what might be inside that project pack!

New Packaging for our Tiles

After much research and development we are thrilled to introduce new retail packaging for many of our Zentangle tiles. This offers more protection for the tiles and some descriptive labeling that nurtures our brand and the Zentangle method.  The new packaging is a custom made envelope style carton. 

There is minimal branding on the outside. 
The printed inside provides information about the eight steps of the Zentangle Method and how to find a CZT. 

And of course, you can easily cover these boxes with tangles.

Along with the new packaging comes some changes. 

  • We now sell white square 3.5" tiles in quantities of 21 instead of 55.
  • We replaced the ZAK Apprentice Refill Tile Pack with packages of 21 Apprentice tiles available in either black or white.
  • We are retiring the Zendala tins in favor of our new packaging.

To see all the details and images of our new product packaging begin at the Tiles section of our website.


Plus . . . this packaging loves to be tangled!

Upcoming Events

2018 CZT-Asia Seminars in Taipei and Shanghai
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!
