WATERTOWN, Mass.—The Armenian Museum will be offering a unique opportunity to continue the tradition of Armenian needlelace. Taught by Textile Curator Susan Lind-Sinanian, the three workshops will teach the intricate regional techniques that were passed down through generations from mother to daughter. Examples from the Museum’s textile collection will be provided for inspiration as you find your voice by sewing edges on linens.
All materials are supplied, so just show up ready to learn techniques practiced by Armenian women for centuries. Have Armenian needlelace at home? Bring them to share your family story!
The workshops will take place on Sundays from March 31st to April 4th from 3-5 p.m at the Adele & Haig Der Manuelian galleries 3rd floor. Workshops costs $90 per person to attend; a discounted rate of $60 will be offered for members.
