Learn to Weave in the Sacred ValleyAwamaki’s 10-day tour of the Andean heartland stops in the isolated village of Patacancha, where students learn how to color alpaca wool with natural plant dyes. Two more days are devoted to one-on-one backstrap loom sessions with Quechua weavers whom the nonprofit supports. From $1,499. This appeared in the September, 2012 issue.
