Do you want to learn to spin with a drop spindle, weave with a backstrap loom, knit local designs, or braid slings? Do you want to study techniques that the Inca and their ancestors used? Would you like to get to know some of the indigenous weavers the CTTC works with and learn from them about their culture and traditions?
Taking a class with the CTTC is a wonderful way to begin to understand not only the mechanics but also the mentality of creating textiles in the Andes. The Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco offers four different courses, each three days long. Please fill out the Class Sign-Up Form below if you are interested in taking a course or contact us if you have any questions. Please review the Class FAQ before contacting us with any questions you may have!
A Note About How We Organize Classes:
The classes that the CTTC offers are private and organized according to when each individual student wishes to take their course. Instructors from the community of Chinchero teach all four of the courses we offer.
