Zena Sabbagh is a master Syrian artisan. When Aleppo was bombed, Zena fled to Beirut. She left many of her possessions behind in order to rescue her precious collection of wooden stamping blocks. Here she set up a block printing atelier, providing employment to women from Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq

This workshop is an opportunity to learn directly from Zena about the art and technique of block print. Participants will leave with a set of decorated tea towels that they themselves have printed. They will also leave with an appreciation of the history and symbolism of this ancient Syrian craft, and a powerful sense of inspiration too.

Watch ISHKAR’s video by Louise Gholam about Zena here: https://vimeo.com/410981516

This workshop is suited for all abilities and ages. All materials are provided and participants are welcome to bring an item clothing or their own fabric to print on.

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, and recent events in Lebanon, unfortunately, Zena will not be able to join us in person for the event but will still attend via video link from her atelier in Beirut.

This workshop is open to participants aged 18 and over. All materials are provided and participants are welcome to bring an item clothing or their own fabric to print on.
