Paracas including the Nazca lines and the Islas Ballestas.

This course is geared toward museum professionals and others with
museum sensibilities and excellent hand skills who want to learn
about textile conservation and pre-Columbian cultures while visiting
Peru. Past students have included conservators from all disciplines,
archaeologists, weavers, historians, and textile aficionados ranging
in age from college students to retirees. To see photos from past
