In an exciting new development in its 11-year history — “a historic milestone in the Zentangle timeline . . . ” — Zentangle HQ has announced an agreement where Certified Zentangle Teacher training seminars will be offered in the Mandarin language in Taiwan beginning this Fall, 2016.

"Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!" ~ Kris H
