Tatreez & Tea: Embroidery Storytelling in the Palestinian Diaspora

Talk and Embroidery Workshops

Join us for a presentation by Wafa Ghnaim, author of Tatreez & Tea, who will speak on the centuries-old folk art of Palestinian tatreez embroidery and on preserving, documenting, and sharing this artistry and its storytelling traditions, so that they are passed to the next generation of Palestinians living in exile.
