Embroidery for Peace

  • King's Manor York (map)

The Embroidery for Peace workshop we held as part of Arts + Activism was so successful we agreed to make this a regular event.  The next meeting is scheduled for Saturday 19th May, 10am, at King’s Manor York 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 of Bordando por la paz (Embroidery for Peace) Puebla at the first workshop.   All materials provided.
