We’ve taken this trip to Peru before, and it’s always an adventure! The scenery is unlike any other part of the world, there are llamas and alpaca EVERYWHERE, the people are unbelievably hospitable and the textiles … well … you get the idea. (There is a reason we keep going back!)
If you’ve always dreamed of visiting Peru, then now is your chance! We’ve had a last minute cancellation for this trip, so we have two more spots left to fill! Join us as we visit Chinchero, Lima, Machu Picchu and Cusco from May 13-23, 2013. We’ll have the chance to learn natural dyeing techniques; we’ll have a workshop on backstrap weaving; a workshop to teach you how to make a Tubular Eye border; as well as visiting ruins, market places, and viewing demonstrations in weaving villages. Please visit our website for booking information and to view the full itinerary.
If you sign up for this trip before March 22, we will make a donation in your name to the Center for Traditional Textiles in Cusco, Peru. The CTTC’s overall purpose is to help preserve and celebrate Andean textiles, improve the economy of the villages and assist weavers in carrying on a tradition practiced for more than 2000 years.
