Wool Weaving is an integral part of the rich cultural history of the Coastal Nations and historically involved gathering, spinning and weaving mountain goat wool. Blankets and headbands are worn for protection of both natural and spiritual elements.
Learn the traditional techniques of Salish Wool Weaving!
Option 1: Use table looms – depending on how fast participants catch on to the technique they will be able to create a bookmarker or wrist band (15 person max).
Option 2: Use a cardboard template – with this option participants create coin pouches and have the ability to take the weaving home to finish if they do not complete.
Included: All guests will meet the Cultural Ambassador at the top of the hour and hear a welcome song, then watch a short film and take a brief guided tour of the museum. Materials to create the craft are included, along with admission to the exhibits, and 10% off in the gift shop.
