Embroidery for Peace

  • King's Manor York (map)

The Embroidery for Peace workshop we held as part of the Arts + Activism Workshop was so successful we agreed to make this a regular event.  The next meeting is scheduled for Saturday 14th April, 10am, at King’s Manor and you are welcome to come along - no need to be an expert sewer.  At the workshop we will continue to embroider white handkerchiefs with the names of human rights defenders killed, missing or threatened, following the guidelines explained by Rosa Borras at the first workshop.   All materials provided.  There will also be some examples of work completed as part of a project with Afghan women to help inspire us.
