This weaving has been an important part to the culture of Peru. The Designs are woven into the fabric and used as a means to communicate between various tribes in the Andes, because languages differed to a great extent. Today, besides using the cloth for clothing and decor, Peruvian textiles play an important role in the country’s trade and commerce. Come & learn how to make your own hand-made colourful woven Peruvian mat for your house with us.

This event is free.
