Spanish & Peruvian Weaving

Spanish & Peruvian Weaving

The decadent colors and intricate designs of the traditional Peruvian weavings are one of the most beautiful hidden secrets of the vast Peruvian culture. All weavings play an important role in the community traditions of Peru such as courtship, marriage, childbirth and annual celebrations.

In our unique Spanish & Peruvian Weaving Workshop in Cusco, you will discover the amount of work and devotion that is dedicated to the fabrication of one single mantle. Experienced Peruvian artisans will teach you traditional weaving and knitting techniques, most commonly using simple handmade looms, and surely but slowly you will learn how to weave these one of a kind textiles.

On Saturday we will visit a local community in the surroundings of Cusco, who will offer us a warm welcome and explain all about the extensive weaving process, such as shearing the sheep, cleaning the wool, spinning the yarn, dying the fabrics and weaving the cloths. We will even get to see the various plants used for the dying and see the different types of threads used. This is a spectacular field trip that will show you first-hand all aspects of this complex art form. The excursion will also give you the opportunity to meet indigenous people from Peru who are eager to share this important part of their culture. Whilst your weaving workshop will take place during the afternoons, you will study Spanish during the mornings (Spanish group lessons, or individual course).
