Join me for an intimate experience of natural dyeing in the Sacred Valley of Cusco. Nestled in the small town of Calca and set against the dramatic peaks and fertile farmland of the valley, the natural dyes workshop is dedicated to creating plant dyes using materials and techniques practiced in the Cusco region for thousands of years. You’ll spend the day learning about the local dye plants, foraging for your materials, processing them according to traditional local practices and creating a range of all-natural, vibrant dyes. Details: - Full duration of the workshop, half day (approx. 4 hours) - Feel free to bring a couple small clothing items or fabric pieces to dye along with the yarn - Open to all ages and all levels! Please let me know if you will be traveling with a child
I've lived in Cusco for the past three years, working in sustainable tourism and collaborating with artisans, communities, organizations and businesses in the highlands and jungles of Peru. My goal through these experiences is to bring together makers and art-lovers from around the world to share and learn from one another. I hope to facilitate opportunities for people of different backgrounds to come together to exchange experiences and learn about alternative perspectives through art and travel.
I'll have snacks on-hand and a gourmet box lunch to eat in the beautiful garden!
All of the supplies for the dye process will be provided, but feel free to bring a couple small items to throw in the dye…
We'll spend the day in the cozy natural dyes workshop nestled in the town of Calca, in Cusco's breathtaking Sacred Valley.

I am thrilled to offer guests this chance to learn about the traditional plant dyes and techniques unique to this region. Please let me know if you have anything in specific you'd like to learn about, and I'll try to work it into the program! This is an all-levels workshop - no experience needed!
