Palestinian embroidery, or tatreez, holds so much meaning to Palestinians: visually, culturally, and politically. This workshop will begin with a discussion about the history of Palestinian embroidery from different regions before 1948. We will discuss how embroidery changes after 1948 in style and significance up to present day. We will also look at how artists and designers interpret and repurpose Palestinian embroidery in their work.

There will be an introduction to basic cross-stitch, followed by participants stitching a Palestinian motif. By the end of the workshop, everyone will have an in-depth understanding of the background of Palestinian embroidery and hands-on experience cross-stitching motifs.
