Family Wool Weaving Workshop with Tanina Williams

In this workshop, Tanina Williams will teach the basics of traditional wool weaving.

Tanina Williams is Lil’wat7ul. She is an educator, weaver, knowledge keeper about traditional plant use and storyteller, who has worked for decades with at-risk youth, children, and teachers, to try and raise awareness and appreciation for indigenous ways of knowing. She runs her own consultancy firm, Amawílc, (Ucwalmictws for “come back to life”) with the mission to bring indigenous and non-indigenous people together, through workshops, presentations and the practice of sharing circles.
