This workshop will be an opportunity to explore the world of 'Tatreez', an ancestral Palestinian textile tradition that has been passed down generations for a thousand years! The participants will first get familiar with the colourful language of symbols and motifs that have been used to document the stories of generations of Palestinians. They will then be able to jump into an embroidery exercise and use both thread and needle to make this rich and vibrant tradition come to life with their own hands.
