Notan

Thanks to Terri for leading us in the design of lovely notan pieces during the March 2017 meeting.

According to Wikipedia, notan is a Japanese design concept involving the play and placement of light and dark elements as they are placed next to the other in the composition of art and imagery.

It is helpful in developing skills related to art composition. And it was great fun. Check out some of the designs created:













Thanks again, Terri!

Book Challenge Results

Last year, Devon issued an artistic challenge to us:

Be inspired by a favorite book. Create a fiber piece that when photographed, may be used as its cover. Size: each side at least 12 inches; and no more than 24 inches
Label: Include the book title on the label attached to the BACK of the piece (no title on front). We will try to guess your chosen book.

Here are the results, as presented during the February meeting:

Pamela Rishfeld:
How Green Was My Valley by Richard Llewellyn
Martha Myers:
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
