July, 2019 TBC.
Experience the textiles and crafts of two fascinating and different countries.
After Galapagos our programme commences in Cuenca then proceeds to the Ecuadorian capital of Quito. Not only do we see and experience extraordinary wildlife, but also wonderful landscapes and interesting towns and villages. Craft skills are very strong – such as dyeing , embroidery and weaving as well as basketwork, hat making and woodwork. We see these through village visits and meeting practitioners and hands on fun. These experiences will continue as we travel to Cusco and Peru’s capital Lima before returning to Australia.
