This class builds on technique learned in Laura's Intro to Tapestry Weaving class. This is a “Level 1-Stretch” projects, so it’s great for students who have taken Level 1 while still being very enjoyable for Level 2 or 3 weavers.  Students who have taken at Intro to Tapestry Weaving, Level 1 are eligible for this class.

Ready to practice your new tapestry weaving skills and apply them to a beautiful scenery piece?  “Loon Lake” is a great Level 1-“Stretch” skill builder that combines techniques from Laura’s course like working hills and valleys to create this lovely Northwoods image. The technique “stretch” for this project includes embroidery and bead elements to bring the loons to life.  The kit comes with beautifully hand dyed wool from her farm’s sheep and a lovely felt mounting board with wooden pins for showing off your finished work.  Practice good technique, enjoy the community of weavers, and advance your skills with this four-part class with Laura.
