Workshop! Palestinian Embroidery (Tatreez)

Palestinian Embroidery (Tatreez)

An Intergenerational Embroidery Workshop
by Nehad Khader and her mom Alia Sheikh-Yousef

when: Monday May 4th, 7pm
where: Dorothy Vernon Room

What does Tatreez look like? Take a peek!

Nehad won an award to research and exhibit Palestinian women’s tatreez. We are very lucky to have her mom join for a workshop on Monday! Growing up in the Yarmouk Palestinian Refugee Camp in Damascus, she used to collect and exhibit women’s tatreez, and eventually asked them to teach her. Since her 20’s Alia Sheikh-Yousef has been making tatreez. Among her pieces she’s made a dress, several shawls, multiple pillows, wall hangings, and tabletop covers. SHE IS GOING TO BRING SOME OF HER WORK TO SHOW US!

At the end of the workshop, we will give you materials to finish the piece you started. We are also going to have yummy snacks 🙂

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
