Memories of Traditional Textiles in Peru

I have been preparing a short talk for during this weekends workshop in Clitheroe, and just wanted to share some of the photos I have just rediscovered. Taken in 2008 during our visit to the Centre for Traditional Textiles in Cusco and to two remote weaving communities in the surrounding area, Chinchero and Pitumarca, under the care and guidance of Nilda Callanaupa. Happy days and glorious memories.


  1. What fabulous pictures. I have a couple pounds of merino roving. I need to learn to use a drop spindle and give it a whirl.

  2. Thanks, it was a wonderful experience. We spent a few days dyeing, spinning and weaving-and laughing at our attempts to understand each other.
