Brenda was very patient both with us a knitters and with our taxi driver who was all confused. She spoke English very well and answered all our questions We got to meet her family and dance with her 86 year old grampa!

Highly recommend Brenda’s experience! We had a blast learning how to hand knit scarves. Brenda spent time with each of us individually to make sure we understood the technique and made a beautiful product. We learned a lot about Peruvian culture and I felt like I made a new friend!

We had sooo much fun knitting with Brenda and highly recommend her experience!! Brenda was flexible, responsive, and really helpful in advance of the experience. The knitting itself was well organized and the perfect balance of challenging but doable to finish a whole scarf in 2 hours. Brenda had lots of options of genuine Peruvian wool. The highlight of the experience however is Brenda herself. She was sooooo friendly and sooo much fun!! She made us feel super welcome, went the extra mile to communicate well with us in English, was a patient and extremely competent teacher, and had us laughing the whole time. At just 24 and already a full time accountant, we were totally blown away by Brenda’s hospitality, skill, and the pure fun of crafting together.

Brenda, joined by Antonio welcomed us after waiting for us to disembark Fromm our cruise. We gladly paid for the $10 taxi to get out of the bedlam of 3000 disembarking in a ship at once. The experience itself was at first a time filler, but we found ourselves thoroughly enjoying it. The conversation, the instruction, the refreshing local drink and getting to know a Brenda and Antonio. I highly recommend this affordable and once in a lifetime experience to knit with our hands and leave with a finished product at the end
