The Peruvian Textiles Instructional Artist Residency is a production residency that includes 3 weeks of master instruction (27 hours total; 9 hours per week) in Peruvian textiles techniques. Residents learn how to use the traditional back-strap loom, including how to assemble it, and basic weaving techniques.
 
Artists join an integral program in which they learn the technique, approach iconography and traditional textile production systems with more resources, and get a better understanding of Peruvian culture.
