The Splendour of Ancient Mexico and Peru Chloe Sayer Wednesday 11 March 2020

Ancient burial grounds in Mexico and Peru have yielded up dazzling goldwork, fine ceramic vessels and some of the richest textiles in the world. Before the Spanish conquest of 1519, numerous civilizations rose and fell; the Olmecs, Maya and the warlike Aztec all forged their own unique and splendid styles on Mexican soils. In Peru the Incas developed one of the greatest planned societies that the world has known. As well as telling their stories Chloe will display contemporary textiles from her own collection.

The price per person for the day is £25. For full information and to book, please email: carolinepetherick@gmail.com
