Zentangle KTT Videos

In January 2017 Zentangle® added a new feature to their Zentangle Mosaic App, called Kitchen Table Tangle (KTT) videos.

Although most of the KTT videos are only available to the subscribers of the paid version of the app ($2.99/month, or $24.99/year), occasionally Zentangle publishes a KTT video on their blog and I also add it to TanglePatterns.

All publicly available KTT videos are linked to their page on All remaining unlinked titles are found in the paid subscription version of the Mosaic App in the T3 folder.

The Zentangle Mosaic app is available in the Apple Store for Apple devices, and on Google Play for Android devices.

The app is free to sign up and can be used with limited viewing abilities. By subscribing to the paid version subscribers to the Zentangle Mosaic have access to the following functionality:

  • Ability to upload tiles and create mosaics
  • Appreciate other users and tiles
  • Comment on tiles and mosaics
  • Access to “Tangles, Tips and Techniques,” “Kitchen Table Tangles,” and “Tangle Step Outs”
  • View tiles at high resolution

The following is a list of the currently available KTT videos. This page is updated when new videos are released either in the Mosaic App or the Zentangle blog or newsletter.

  6. "A Zentangle has no up or down and is not a picture of something, so you have no worries about whether you can draw a hand, or a duck. You always succeed in creating a Zentangle." Thus patterns that are drawings of a recognizable naturalistic or actual object, figure, or scene, are not tangles. A pattern is not always a tangle — here's what makes a tangle. TIP: tangles never start with pencil planning.

"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!
