We are fortunate to have very skilled embroiderers stitching for the Palestine History Tapestry [PHT] Project in Gaza, The Naqab, Ramallah, Jordan, and Lebanon. So far, they have completed 17 panels and 13 spacers, and 4 panels and 5 spacers are currently being stitched. The Project’s field coordinators, historians, and organisers have identified 139 possible images for stitch.
There is much to do.
Eleven panels have been photographed onto canvas and exhibited publically, and they are available for exhibition bookings. If travel expenses can be reimbursed, one of the UK-based founders of the Project will present the background and development of the Palestine History Project, and answer questions about it.Talks help to create awareness of the Project and to raise funds to support the work through donations and sale of embroidery.
Five of the exhibition panels, Calligraphy, Gaza Roof Tops, Henna Party, The Nativity, and Olive Harvest, have been selected for a limited edition purchase. The images have been printed onto canvas, by a method called Giclée printing and are ready for framing or mounting.
Each canvas is roughly two thirds of the original in size, approximately 58cm x 30cm
