Syrian Textiles Art!

I am so thankful to conduct an art workshop about Syrian textiles in Stitch Buffalo! I had a lot of fun working with participants to create beautiful pieces of art representing Syrian culture and art.

I will continue sharing my art and Syrian culture with different communities.
