Opening Friday, December 28th, from 10AM - 11PM
Join us at the Watan Pop-Up at the 2018 MAS ICNA Conference in Chicago as we host another Tatreez Workshop!
This particular workshop will be an all-day ongoing event for the weekend of the convention. We welcome all skill levels, ages, and backgrounds (unless you support initiatives like MLI 😒) to attend. If you are a beginner, we will have a short lesson, materials on hand, and printed patterns to help get you started. For more experienced embroiders, we welcome you to bring your own work as we all embroider together; we also welcome you to bring samples of your work to show us! If you’ve attended a previous workshop, feel free to attend again and bring your piece to continue working on it. Seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. So come by, read, check out our booth, and learn some tatreez with Watan!

Watan is a community space and arts studio focused on exploring Palestinian intellectual, cultural, and historical heritage. Originally created as an online shop, Watan has developed into a brick-and-mortar shop, studio, and community space, set on providing a specifically Palestinian-centered space in the dense Chicagoland Palestinian community. We hope to hold various events and workshops in the space and continue to support creative and rigorously disciplined Palestinian work.
