Tatreez, or al-tatreez, is an intricate form of Palestinian cross-stitch embroidery. It is distinguished by rich colors and textures and the technique is typically passed down from mother to daughter, who would begin learning it as early as age six. For Palestinian women, tatreez is a way of documenting history, as well as the life of the person wearing the designs. Designs often include themes and symbols relevant to the Palestinian experience today, such as resistance to Israeli occupation.

This workshop will be held in person at the Quaker Hall, Lawn Terrace, Blackheath, London from 1pm -4pm and online zoom attendees will join us starting at 2pm.

More details will be added to this page nearer the time.
