1100 Chestnut Street, Vancouver, BC


Join Ay Lelum -The Good House of Design - for an afternoon of Coast Salish textile art, music and history.

The Ay Lelum family will introduce and educate you to rudimentary elements of Traditional Coast Salish art practice. Each participant will paint their own linen table runner / wall hanging which can be taken with you to enjoy in your own home.

Participants working alongside Ay Lelum will experience the inner workings and collaborative spirit of their family artistic collective and practice. As a second-generation Coast Salish Design House, sisters Aunalee and Sophia are inspired, taught, and mentored by their parents William Good and Sandra Moorhouse-Good. Master Carver and feature artist, William Good and painter, Sandra Moorhouse-Good will guide you in your painting of a Coast Salish Salmon Run created by William Good.

Sandra Moorhouse-Good has been painting for close to 70 years and painting textiles and clothing since the 1980s inspiring the development of the families former Ay Ay Mut clothing line. This workshop explores various techniques celebrating William Good and Sandra Moorhouse-Good’s design roots in textile arts in addition to Aunalee and Sophia’s approach to contemporary design.

15+ years. No previous textile design work is necessary.
