MAWA: Crafternoon with Lweh Say

Making old clothes new again!
All genders welcome!
Embroidery materials will be provided, but please bring clothes you would like to decorate.

Needles will fly through the air, stringy bits will lie on the floor, and skills will be shared by Lweh Say on Saturday, April 2, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at MAWA, 611 Main Street. 

Lweh is a Karen (southern Burmese) embroiderer who uses cross stitch and a unique raised stitch to create traditional floral and geometric designs. Lweh studied embroidery as a schoolgirl, working on the most difficult of materials: silk.

The MAWA New Canadian Artisan Outreach Pilot Program has been funded by the Women’s Endowment at the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba.
