Weaving is an ancient endeavor that is practiced around the world by all its inhabitants, which include plants, animals, and people. We all participate in the weaving process. We do this through the physical act of weaving itself, but also through our language, as Chief Janice George said: “weaving is part of the Salish tree of life; from the roots of this tree grow the teachings that form the Coast Salish worldview." In this introductory weaving course, you will learn about the traditional Coast Salish two-bar loom with floating third bar. We will successfully warp the loom and start and finish a small twill pattern weaving, then gift it away per the established indigenous protocol.
