iPerth blanket Mark Hall LIZ aThe Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at UBC presents a Tour of Coast Salish Textiles: Up Close on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 7pm. Visitors will be guided through a history of Coast Salish spinning by Coast Salish spinning specialist Liz Hammond-Kaarremaa. The tour will provide an examination of the fibres and tools used by different nations to create these powerful robes and blankets. A close study of the yarn will reveal that many robes likely contain surprising or unusual fibres such as mountain goat wool, Indian hemp/dogbane, stinging nettles, and wool from the extinct Salish Woolly dog.

Free with museum admission. For more information visit: moa.ubc.ca/tour-of-coast-salish-textiles-up-close/
