November 12th, 2017
The Away Weaving Association, Chinchero
Organized by: Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco
Registration & information: email@example.com
Join us for a full day of natural dyeing in the community of Chinchero, located 45 minutes outside of the city of Cusco. The weavers of the Away Weaving Association will teach you how to dye using the same plants, minerals and insects that the Inca and other Pre-Columbian cultures used to color their exquisite textiles. The Natural Dye Workshop will cover the use of six local dyes and over 8 colores and hues. Each participant in the workshop will recieve a skein of yarn for each color, a packet of instructions and a Tinkuy Dye Workshop souvenir. Lunch and transportation to Chinchero from Cusco are included in the cost of the workshop; participants will leave Cusco at 9:00 am and return by 6:00 pm. Space in the Natural Dye Workshop is limited; the cost and registration for this workshop are separate from general Tinkuy registration.
