June 24, 2017 – Trip – Chimayo & Spanish Weaving


We will begin our day with a visit to the Santuario de Chimayo which is a part of the Catholic religious order known as the Sons of the Holy Family.  El Santuario de Chimayo is one of the most important pilgrimage sites in the world.  During Easter as many as 40,000 people journey to El Santuario, some traveling hundreds of miles on foot.  After our tour we will go to Ortega Weaving and an introduction to the Spanish weaving tradition in New Mexico. We will break for lunch at Rancho de Chimayo and then visit Centinela Traditional Arts, the home of Irvin and Lisa Trujillo both master weavers whose work has been shown in museums worldwide.  There will be plenty of time for shopping.
