CIPS Archaeological Textile Course

    Archaeological Textile Studies
    Arequipa, Peru

    Bryn Mawr College

Join us for the CIPS Archaeological Textile Course this summer. This
year we are offering two courses: one at beautiful Bryn Mawr College
outside of Philadelphia, and another in Arequipa, Peru. Both courses
center on the tools and techniques employed in the analysis of
archaeological textile materials of ancient Peru and introduce
students to the archaeology of the Andes.

Students will learn to identify, analyze and document the features
of ancient textiles (fiber, spin and ply structure, weave structure,
iconography, and various other techniques) by examining
archaeological textiles from various sites in Peru from the
impressive CIPS and Bryn Mawr collections, and by learning how to
spin and weave the Andean way. The course includes lectures on the
art and archaeology of pre-Columbian Andean cultures, guest lectures
by archaeologists and fiber artists, and field trips to local

This course is suited to art and archaeology students, museum
professionals and textile enthusiasts of any age.
