While one may not necessarily jump to making a thobe in their first years of embroidery, students will be inspired to embroider onto the denim they own at home -- a very practical way to personalize ones clothing.
The History & Art of Palestinian Embroidery - Palestine in a Box
Waste canvas allows you to adorn any piece of cloth or clothing, and is an important skill to master if you aspire to create traditional Palestinian embroidered garments. All materials are provided and no prior needlework experience is required -- but, bring your own tweezers if you have a certain set that you are most comfortable using! And, don't forget your glasses! The chest design of a traditional Palestinian thobe is notably intricate, and features a unique collage of motifs that communicates a central theme to the meaning of the embroidery of the entire garment.

The embroiderer communicates to her viewers through the chest design first, telling us if she will be sharing an educational lesson about snakes, a sentimental story using floral motifs, or documenting the story of Cleopatra. The chest design also gives us the name of the thobe.
In the final class of the series, Wafa will teach you how to assemble a chest design, manage medium-sized embroidery projects, and learn how to embroider with burlap with the hope to inspire her students to continue on to their own project and produce a thobe of their very own. For generations, Palestinian women have gathered together with their daughters to work collectively on embroidery projects, bonding with one another over a cup of tea.watch
How traditional embroidery helps Palestinian women achieve independence
Over time, and after the exodus of Palestinians from Palestine in , embroidery has become an endangered art that has been subjected to decades of cultural appropriation. But embroidery represents more than just a village craft of old Palestine -- it became the primary form of communication for Palestinian women who used needlework as a way to express their opinions, share their stories, and document their protest of occupation, war and violence.
