Tinkuy 2017, the Gathering of the Textile Arts in Cusco, Peru, November 8–11, 2017. This international gathering of indigenous textile artisans, textile enthusiasts, art historians, anthropologists, and many others will celebrate the wealth and diversity of our textile traditions, and everyone is invited!

 Not only will there be hands-on workshops and opportunities to learn about textile arts from some of the world’s leading experts, this unique conference also helps encourage and empower textile artisans from developing countries who are continuing their traditions, strengthening their communities, and making a future for their families. You cannot imagine the pride in the eyes of a weaver from a tiny village community when she sees hundreds of weavers from around the world gathered to celebrate her traditions—traditions that have been undervalued and all but lost in the weaver’s own society. Not only do the artisan participants come away with new weaving ideas and a new sense of pride, they leave with training to help them make their businesses more successful and sustainable.

Workshops: Art Expressed as Felt
Lisa Hinrichs will be teaching a series of three workshops for both beginners and felters with experience. If you have tried felting before and thought it was too strenuous this may be the class for you since it will be possible to sit for a portion of the time. There are two felted 2 dimensional art classes (May 13th and July 8th) and one class making a felted vessel (June 10th). If you sign up for all three of the workshops then you will receive a discount of 10%
