Peru: Weaving Words and Women
with Page Lambert and Laura Tyson
April 19-30, 2013
A cultural immersion into Peru ~ the ancient, the sacred, the everyday world of women.
Join author and writing teacher Page Lambert, and Laura Tyson, on this 12-day cultural immersion, exploring the lives and weavings of the Quechua women of the high Andes. We will visit small villages where the women are practicing their ancient craft, weaving textiles that tell the story of their unwritten history. We’ll also explore the Incan towns and ruins of the Sacred Valley, the magical city of Cusco, and visit the unparalleled Machu Picchu. Throughout the retreat, Page will guide us in capturing our experience on the written page.There is no need to be a practiced writer.
