Doing Palestinian embroidery for enjoyment

Photos for the embroidery from Camden School for Girls

Palestinian  clothes are the most impotent element of Palestinian culture.The type of clothing, the shape of embroidery and the different colors will identify each city, also it depends on geography, social and money considerations.
At Camden School for Girls, CADFA volunteers had a  student learning session about embroidery.
The students enjoyed the session and each of them was excited to finish their work  next week.

Embrodery at Camden Girls School

This week, I went with Tamara and Camille to Camden Girls School for the lunch club. At Camden Girls School we do the lunchtime club on Tuesdays. During this session, we did embroidery. Each child chose which embroidery they wanted to do. In fact, some chose to do their names, some chose to do flags…

We had only the time to start but the children were really involved. We will finish these embroderies during the next session.
