Peru Textile & Weaving Tour 2012
Join textile expert Gina Corrigan, exploring the small indigenous communities of Peru. Discover the traditions behind the brightly coloured textiles and weavings of the Andes, taking in the main highlights of this enchanting country.
Visit local families to learn about the unique weaving patterns and traditions which have been passed through generations for over 2,000 years. With thousands of styles, techniques and practices associated with Peruvian weavings this exploration of textiles is truly insightful.
Also spend time with expert weaver, Nilda Callanaupa, a resident of Cusco who encourages families in the Sacred Valley to continue the ancient weaving traditions, helping to create a larger market for the textile economy for their communities.
