Palestinian Tatreez Embroidery: Advanced Motifs on Tote Bags
Date(s) - 07/12/2019
4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Instructor: Wafa Ghnaim
In this 3-hour workshop, students will learn how to embroider, Palestinian style! Students will learn the most traditional embroidery technique used by Palestinian women for centuries — use of the waste canvas fabric. This fabric allows you to adorn any piece of cloth or clothing, and is an important skill to master if you aspire to create traditional Palestinian embroidered garments.
This workshop is a follow-up to the Palestinian Embroidery 101 class that teaches the basic cross-stitch. Participants can use their new skill in a practical application by cross stitching a motif on a tote bag, creating their own embroidered creation. This workshop is also ideal for anyone who already knows how to cross-stitch using waste canvas and would like to learn how to confidently apply various motifs onto garments.
