14 Day Experience:

Tapestry Weaving Workshop & Tour

We have organized a 14 day experience for those who are interested in doing a tour after the tapestry weaving workshop. This experience will have a focus on textiles and folk art, so we are looking forward to sharing our favorite textiles spots in Cusco with you, while visiting all of the beautiful archeological sites of the area, including Machu Picchu.

This will be exclusively with students of the tapestry weaving workshop, so you will only travel with your fellow students

The Itinerary that we have planned, including the workshop, is as follows:

Day 1: Arriving to Cusco
October 17, 2024

On this day we’ll pick you up at the Cusco airport and take you to the Sonesta Posadas del Inca Hotel, where you’ll be staying for the following 10 days and where the workshop will take place. The hotel is located in a beautiful town called Yucay, in the Sacred Valley of Cusco, about 1:20 hours from the city of Cusco.

On the first day it is important to rest for a bit in order to get used to the altitude of the city. The altitude in the Sacred Valley is lower than in the city, so it’s going to be a great way to acclimate to the altitude of Cusco. You will have time to rest and to have lunch at the hotel or at a nearby restaurant of your choosing.

Days 2 – 5: Tapestry Weaving Workshop
October 28 – 21, 2024

During the following 4 days you’ll be focused on your tapestry weaving workshop, which will take place at the Soneseta hotel, where you’ll be staying.

The workshop will begin every morning after breakfast, from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm, with a coffee break in the morning and another in the afternoon.

Lunch at the Sontesta hotel is included for these 4 days. 

Day 6: City Tour of Cusco
October 22, 2024

After breakfast we’ll be transferred to the city of Cusco in order to explore the city through a walking tour. We’ll visit the Maximo Laura Museum, where Maximo will give us a very special tour of his private collection, to then explore San Blas, which is Cusco’s artistic neighborhood.

Before the end of the day we will visit the gallery/museum of the CTTC (Center of Traditional Textiles of Cusco), to see some of the most beautiful traditional textiles found in this area. They are a non-profit organization established to aid in the survival of traditional Andean textile traditions and to provide support to weaving communities. They have a gallery/museum in the city of Cusco, and another location in the town of Chinchero, an hour away from Cusco.

We will visit their Cusco location first, and will go to their location in Chinchero to do our natural dyes workshop with them on Day 13. We have added this visit, even if we are visiting them in Chinchero, because in Cusco you will find a variety of quality of textiles, so we want to show you this very high quality work early on.

Days 7 – 9: Tapestry Weaving Workshop
October 23 – 25, 2024

The following 3 days will also be exclusively for the tapestry weaving workshop, from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm. Lunch at the Sontesta hotel is included for these 3 days. 

On October 25, the last day of class, we’ll organize a small exhibition of all the final works of the workshop!

Day 10: Sacred Valley of the Incas & Pisaq
October 26, 2024

As the last day of class is on October 25, we’ll coordinate your checkout of the Sonesta Hotel on October 26. We’ll be staying in the city of Cusco after that point.

We’ll start the day by visiting the Pisaq Market, a market which has also expanded to include, textiles, ceramic, jewelry, musical instruments and much more! On our way to Pisaq we will stop at a weaving center to get some insight into the entire textile process, we will see alpacas, llamas and vicuñas and explore the textile process in the Andes.

After having time to explore the Pisaq Market, we will have lunch at a local restaurant in the market, and then meet back to go to the Pisaq Archeological Site, where we will spend the rest of the afternoon. After Pisaq we will head to our hotel in the city.

Day 11: Sacred Valley & Aguas Calientes Town
October 27, 2024

After breakfast, we will visit two archeological sites in the Sacred Valley: Moray and the salt mines of Maras. We will go to lunch at a delicious buffet restaurant located at the foot of the Urubamba river, with many traditional and international cuisine options (this meal is included in the tour). After lunch we will visit the Archeological Site in the Inca town of Ollantaytambo. In the late afternoon you will take the train to Aguas Calientes, the city that is just before Machu Picchu, where you will be able to have diner and rest for a very beautiful next day! The citadel of Machu Picchu is located only 23 minute away from Aguas Calientes.

October 29, 2024
