Stitching workshop1

This activity is designed to help participants engage with concepts of memory through embroidery as explored in the exhibition ‘Rainbows Under Their Feet.’ Participants will be provided with a selection of small objects found on beaches in Ras Al Khaimah during the artist's residency. Through the use of simple embroidery techniques, each participant will stitch selected fragments to a canvas, creating a unique piece of art that captures the memories associated with these lost souls. No prior sewing knowledge or experience is required
