Intermediate Tapestry Weaving

This class is a next step for students who already know how to make a basic weft-faced tapestry.  Robin will demo the basics of graduated shading and vertical striping; students will choose one of the two methods to practice in class.  The student may bring a small tapestry loom to weave on, or may purchase a Tayet tapestry loom from The Dancing Goats ($50).  Weft yarn will be available, and students are welcome to bring their own yarn as well.
