This course has a theoretical-practical nature. In this course you will learn about Peruvian prehispanic textiles and a technique turned into a work of art that made it possible for ancient weavers to reflect, with great experience, their life and the environment in their textiles.

Yes, I recommend this program

One relaxing experience in the sacred valley

The experience we had in Cusco was incredible, we shared with Artisans from the communities and got to see beautiful landscapes and also we had massages at the Creativity Lodge, I recommend this experience if you are looking for a place to disconnect yourself and to really forget any stress, learning knitting and dyeing processes with Artisans and visiting incredible places such as Pisac, Ollantaytambo and of course Machu Picchu. The experience in general and the personnel were totally incredible, I enjoyed Cusco a lot.

What would you improve about this program?
Maybe include more touristic visits to different places in the region
