This workshop will teach participants some techniques such as gold Wire on toile and zari.

Gold wire on toile is a kind of Emirati embroidery .It uses 22 karat gold wire and we usually use this technique on toile also known as knitting.

In this workshop participants will learn how to design this technique on their shawl or Abaya.

They will also learn different techniques of zari embroidery such as stem, filling, twisted and how to combine it with pearls and beads to design a fashion cloth. They will also be given the opportunity to learn how to use the UAE’s traditional pattern in their imaginative clothing design.

Note: Please bring a clothing item which you would like to practice the embroidery on. Alternatively a piece of fabric can be provided in class.
