How to draw TRENTWITH

Zentangle pattern: Trentwith. 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.The lovely Trentwith tangle pattern comes to us from Philadelphia, PA, CZT® Terri Greenberg.

Trentwith makes a good filler and a very pretty border tangle too. I embellished the white spaces with dots  in my example of the pattern but it looks great without those too.

“Trentwith is based on a granite monument in the Laurel Hill Cemetery, in Philadelphia. About one-third of the way up the obelisk, there’s a swag of ‘Trentwith’ roses. The monument marks the plot of John Trentwith and his family. I’ve been working with the folks at the cemetery to develop a class in 2012 that will combine a Zentangle introduction with a ‘tangle hunt’ through the grounds. I am really looking forward to that!

The cemetery recently published a book commemorating their 175th year, and I’m proud to say that there is a Zentangle tile in it! Naturally, it features Trentwith. I’ve also designed this year’s logo for the Gravediggers’ Ball, and it’s a combination of Laurel Hill’s ‘angel head’ logo and several tangle patterns. You can see the publicity image here.

As for me, I’m a member of CZT class number 3 and actually learned about Zentangle way back in 2008 when a member of the Yahoo art group I moderated (Ephemeral Notions) mentioned it when we did an ‘inchie’ swap. I immediately looked at Zentangle; I immediately began tangling; I immediately began telling everyone about it. The principle behind Ephemeral Notions was always that we all had creative sparks within us, and of course, Zentangle embodies that very concept. I’m tickled to have brought Zentangle to the Philadelphia area, and I’m delighted that so many here are receptive to it.”

Many of you might recognize the creation of the wonderful Scottish Arts & Crafts/Art Nouveau architect-designer-craftsman, and Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1929) contemporary, Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) at the heart of this tangle. One of his more recognizable icons is the so-called “Mackintosh Rose” which can be found on everything from architectural embellishments to fabric and jewelry. (And granite monuments.) It makes a fine tangle.
