Workshop
Andean Textile Workshop: Khipu and Pre-Khipu Making
Dr. Jeffrey C. Splitstoser, Textile Specialist for the Huaca Prieta Archaeological Project, and Dr. Anne Tiballi, Director of Archaeological Textile Studies for the California Institute for Peruvian Studies offer a workshop on making and interpreting Inka Khipu (quipu) and the wrapped batons or sticks that are believed to be pre-khipu; precursors of the Khipu. Participants will devise a pattern to execute on the wrapped sticks and make khipu with birth date or other significant information on it. The workshop includes an introduction to yarn spin/ply analysis, as yarn qualities are important to the codification of information in the khipu, and will include all materials. Sponsored by the Pre-Columbian Society at the Penn Museum. Workshop cost: $20 ($10 for students). Pre-registration is required.
