TINKUY de TEJEDORES
A Gathering of Weavers


November 5-6, 2010 • Sacred Valley, Peru



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco (CTTC) invites you to participate in a tinkuy, or coming together, of weavers and spinners in the Sacred Valley of the Peruvian Highlands near Cusco on November 5-6. Two days of presentations will be followed by optional hands-on workshops on November 7-8. A tour that includes the tinkuy, the workshops, and visits to weaving villages and archaeological sites will also be available.

The purpose of the tinkuy is to broaden horizons, deepen understandings, and forge connections among people who are passionate about textiles. Weavers from nine communities associated with CTTC, and weavers from several other countries of the Americas, will share traditions and techniques, and with all those who value the art and craft of weaving and spinning. In addition to presentations by the local and visiting weaving communities, there will be illustrated talks by specialists on themes of common interest: fibers, natural dyes, historic textiles, and international projects that support weavers.

Workshops in traditional Andean techniques of backstrap weaving, tubular ribetes (edgings), chullo (hat) knitting, and natural dyeing will be offered for English- and Spanish-speaking guests on November 7th and 8th. The workshops will be taught by a bi-lingual person and the weavers of Chinchero.

A brochure describing the Tinkuy, as well as several types of registration forms (with and without added tours), can be downloaded from the Andean Textile Arts website: http://andeantextilearts.org/tinkuy.htm

Details of this event have come to my notice. If I was in a position to travel I would be in the process of booking my flight right now!

I have now seen the information on the Tinkuy which is available via http://andeantextilearts.org/tinkuy.htm and I wish even more that I was able to travel to the event. It sounds fascinating and a really good programme.
