Interwoven History: Coast Salish Wool
Since time-immemorial, Coast Salish people have relied on natural resources to create textiles that communicate status, wealth, and functionality.
Interwoven History: Coast Salish Wool invites visitors to learn about the fundamentals of weaving, while exploring the materials, techniques, processing, and technology. The exhibit will explore the history of the extinct woolly dog and will provide interactive displays for adults and youth to engage in. An almost lost tradition, wool weaving has endured a revitalization over the last decade. We invite you to see our textiles and how they came to life.
