Zentangle with Emily Suess, CZT

I started Zentangling in 2018 when I was going through adjuvant chemotherapy to treat my brain tumor. The Zentangle Method gave me a pleasant distraction at a time when I could do little else. I learned new Zentangle patterns by watching videos on YouTube and created my channel to log my progress. In 2022, I became a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT).

More chemo forced me to pause my video making for a while, but I am eager to one day get back to it. If you’re a Zentangle fan, or if you just want to learn more, these are my video suggestions for getting started.

Zentangle Patterns for every letter of the alphabet

In my continuing quest to learn even more Zentangle patterns, I came across the website tanglepatterns.com. It’s a great resource with hundreds of tangles from the official Zentanglers—Maria, Rick and the crew—at HQ as well as certified Zentangle teachers (CZTs) and Zentangle enthusiasts.

I completed another series of tutorial videos selecting one pattern from the always-growing list of tangles for each letter of the English alphabet. From Aquafleur to Zenith, let’s learn how to draw 26 more Zentangle patterns together.
