25th February & 4th March | 12:00 - 14:00
P21 Gallery will host a series of workshops on The Art of Palestinian Tatreez.
There will be two workshops, each one will focus on one motif. The workshops will be divided as follows:
Stitching Resistance (post 1948) Tree of Life and Coffee Cup | 25th February 2023
Stitching Resistance (post 1948) Flora , Birds and Stars | 4th March 2023
The workshops will be delivered by the Tatreez Collective, committed to documenting the cultural heritage of Palestine through the art of Palestinian cross-stitch. They view their practice as a way to document and promote Palestinian heritage, as well as an act of resistance in keeping Palestinian embroidery alive.
The collective is a group of three diasporic women of Middle Eastern heritage united by a love of Tatreez. They want to share their skills and spread this art form, to connect to and promote Palestinian art. Each workshop will be 2 hours, to give time for students to learn the motif and ask any questions. We aim to have 20 attendees in each workshop.
The workshops will be taught by the Tatreez Collective, which is made up of:
Yomn Al-Kaisi – Embroidery artist
Dina Asfour – Embroidery artist
Lizzy Vartanian – Embroidery artist
All materials needed for the workshop will be provided, threads, aida stitching material, and needles. Attendees will be able to take home their embroidered piece.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Workshops on 11th, 18th, & 25th March are cancelled, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, if you have booked on any of these workshop you can request refund from Eventbrite
The workshops are delivered in partnership with Tatreez Collective.
