Our scheduled trips in 2013 have us really excited. Kid in a candy store excited … or a weaver in a wool shop!
Our trip to the Peruvian Highlands from May 13 – 23 has got us really excited. There are so many treasures to be found between the breath-taking Andes, the Sacred Valley of the Incas, the beauty of Machu Picchu — it’s a traveling wonderland!
We’re also teaming up with local legend Nilda Callanaupa Alvarez (author of Weaving in the Peruvian Highlands) and the creator of the Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco. Nilda will help us immerse ourselves in the textile traidions of the Peruvian Highlands. We are also able to offer an exclusive weaving workshop with Maximo Laura, one of the most renowned weavers in the world! The workshop is an extension of the Peru itinerary — please visit our website for the full itinerary and details on how to book your spot.
We’ve just finalized the details for our Scotland trip, but what a trip it will be! From October 8 – 24, we will explore the Highlands of Scotland. This is even a great one for the non-weaver … Scotland is rife with golfing, hiking, bike tours and horseback riding! Who doesn’t love legendary castles, dramatic sweeping landscapes, mystical isles, deep misty lochs and rich textiles galore! (Here’s a link to a short video we made.) This is only a part of what makes Scotland seem like a dream – a true Brigadoon. We will meander through the Highlands and islands of Scotland immersed in a variety of textile workshops that are sure to thrill any textile enthusiast.
