Traditional Peruvian Fashion Experience in Peru

Project Overview

This gap year venture in Peru programme gives you the chance to gain experience in traditional fashion design while helping out the local ladies who have made this their livelihood.

You will get the chance to immerse yourself in Peruvian culture by means of learning about traditional ways to make clothes as well as help the local community.

You will take part in fashion and craft design workshops and engage in tasks such as making drafts, knitting, sewing, painting and much more.

While on the project, you’ll be encouraged to share your knowledge and experience of creating appealing designs and garments. It is the aim of the project to produce items which will be appealing to local consumers, tourists and higher quality factories. Through your voluntary contribution, you will be assisting the project to increase the sales revenue for clothing in the area.

Working with local weavers and artisans, you’ll be able to create garments which will combine your creativity with the styles of Peru making them inspiring and eye-catching! As well as working at the clothing factory, you’ll also have opportunities to explore the local area with visits to local markets and working with communities in the rural areas of Peru.

 

Please Note: Projects start on a Monday, however you should arrive over the weekend on either Saturday or Sunday.

Project Itinerary

Monday to Friday

After breakfast on Monday you’ll visit the workshop place, where you will be introduced to the basics of the world of design, materials, processes, techniques and more general knowledge about the programme and what’s expected of you. On Tuesday you’ll go to the workshop in Cajamarca, where locals practice a unique and traditional way of knitting, painting or embroidering clothes. You will spend your time with a local teacher there. 

On Wednesday you will get to choose one piece (e.g. bag, pants or a dress) that you would like to create. You will learn to sew by hand or with a sewing machine as well as practice the traditional way of knitting, embroidering or painting clothes.

On Thursday you’ll visit a local school in Cajamarca, where you will get the chance to interact with the students and learn more about their culture and life in Peru. You’ll attend a sewing class with them and learn more about the traditional way of clothing manufacture. In the afternoon, you’ll go back to the workshop to continue your work on your garment. Finishing your day at around 5pm, you’ll have time to attend some activities offered by the school. On Friday you’ll finish off your garment at the workshop.
