About the event:
TPFF presents its third annual program designed especially for youth. This hands-on craft workshop led by Amnna Attia will teach the artistic and cultural tradition of Palestinian tatreez, including the intricate motifs, storytelling preserved in every stitch and the techniques required to make them come to life.
Participants will embroider fabric with colourful Palestinian symbols and can continue practicing their skills at home afterwards. All materials are provided and no previous experience is required. Recommended age group: 12+

Her work has been exhibited in group shows at the Gladstone Hotel, Albright Knox Museum, Art Gallery of Mississauga, the Neilson Park Creative Centre, and the Virtual Art Gallery of Experiences Canada.
