What will you do?

If you come in the morning, we will welcome you at the Pumaq Wasin house and we will depart to the Piuray lagoon. We will tell you the history of our beloved lagoon and why it represents the feminine energy in our Andean tradition. That is why we will ask permission to its waters, making a floral offering to grant us a great day of work and sharing. Back in Pumaq Wasin, we will teach you the techniques of traditional backstrap loom weaving: from washing the wool and spinning, to weaving. Then we will share lunch we prepare with local organic products: quinoa, corn pepián and vegetable torrejas. And to finish with a sweet ending, we will treat you to a wheat bread with tumbo jam, a delicious local fruit.
If you come in the afternoon the order will be inverted. Lunch first, then the textile and weaving demonstration and we will end up with the ritual at the Piuray lake
