Wafa Ghnaim: Teaching Palestinian Liberation through Tatreez

In this episode, we’re joined by Wafa Ghnaim, an award-winning Palestinian researcher, educator and author living in Washington, DC. Her book, titled, Tatreez and Tea: Embroidery and Storytelling in the Palestinian Diaspora was published in 2018 and documents the stories and meanings behind the Palestinian embroidery motifs that were handed down to Wafa by her mother, Feryal Abbasi Ghnaim, an award-winning artist herself. Join us as Wafa shares the story of moving from embroidery circles with her mother and aunts, to being the first ever Palestinian embroidery instructor at the Smithsonian Museum.
