Each course includes:
A packet of information about textile traditions and the history of textiles in Peru
A packet of instructions
A drop spindle
Two small backstrap looms already set up to weave
Five knitting needles
Two pre-started slings
Backstrap weaving is very different from other styles of weaving. Even if you are an experienced weaver in other techniques, this does not necessarily lend itself easily to the backstrap loom. We suggest that if you have never woven specifically with the backstrap loom in the double-sided technique of the Cusco region that you still start at the basics.
