Product Description

Notan – Free Form Design
November 5, Sunday, 1-4pm
Instructor: Annie Reiser
The Japanese use the term Notan to describe a key element of design, which is the interplay between light and dark shapes. In Western terms, we talk about positive and negative space. Traditional Notan consists only of stark black and white shapes cut from paper, but local artist Annie Reiser uses colored and unique papers as well. Some of her designs remind us of Henri Matisse, who called his paper cut outs “drawing with scissors”. The value of Notan in design is that it teaches one to see darks and lights. Plus, it yields delightfully serendipitous results. To learn the Notan approach, you’ll first re-create Annie’s sample piece, which has a botanical theme, as a practice exercise. After that, you’ll draw your own designs, cut them out from unique papers supplied by Two Hands Paperie, then paste the cut outs down to create a piece ready for framing. Simple!

 
Please bring the following materials:
  • Favorite pair of scissors suitable for fine cutting
  • Glue stick
  • Optional: a design you’d like to try as a Notan
Cancellation Policy
Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to the first class meeting will be refunded or, at the participant's option, used to pay for another class. Two Hands Paperie will retain a $10 processing fee for EACH class cancelled by a participant. After 14 days, there is no refund or credit. In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class. These policies are to ensure that teachers are compensated for their investment in materials and in time spent preparing for the class. We reserve the right to cancel a class if fewer than 3 students enroll 48 hours prior to the scheduled class time. If for any reason Two Hands Paperie cancels a class, students will be called at the phone number on file and refunded the FULL class fee.
