Episode 87: Indigenous Fiber and Craft Making in Cusco Peru with Aula Artesana 

by LaChaun Moore

This week on the podcast I am speaking with Sonya and Steph of Aula Artesana, a retail and learning space located in the heart of Cusco, Peru. Sonya and Steph collaborate with Indigenous artisans, communities, organizations and businesses in the highlands and jungles of Peru  in order to build a unique, curated collection of handmade products. They offer group and custom hands-on workshops with master artisans in hopes to facilitate opportunities for people of different backgrounds to come together to exchange experiences and learn about alternative perspectives through art and travel. They currently have an active Kick Starter campaign to support their project ending in just about a week on November 17th so I encourage those interested to support !  Comment below to keep the conversation going! 


Don't forget to mention Gist: Yarn & Fiber when you make a $50 no-reward pledge to the Aulita Kickstarter Campaign for an Aula Artesana  yarn reward!
