Lecture on the history of needlework in context of womens’ art. 

Textiles and embroidery are traditionally considered women’s work, decorative craft, insignificant and somewhat part of women’s oppression.
However it became a field where political and domestic is woven together. For a long time, textiles were the only possible way women could tell their stories and often the only space to scream, therefore needlework became a source of feminist power.
We’ll talk about the history of needlework in context of women's art: starting with ancient greek myths through wars, genocides, revolutions fiber arts have remained a form of political resistance and a safe space for women. From 14 years old british girls in 16 century to raging modern artists and activists we’ll see how has been always channeling women's voices.
