Kenyan Embroiderers Guild
KENYA | 2018
SECTION OF DRESS: Kenyan figures
A vibrant and uplifting embroidery celebrating the beauty of Kenyan women.
The Kenyan Embroiderers Guild in Nairobi was started in 2007 by 2 enthusiastic embroiderers and has become a hub of interest, support and inspiration to its members - a place to connect, share ideas and create beautiful embroidery.
Initially the main objective of Guild was to offer a place where keen and like-minded needle crafters could meet to discuss and exchange ideas. It did not take long to recognize that there was a very broad range of interest amongst the members and our members were keen to learn about other techniques and stitches.
Each figure was created by a different member of the Guild, and the final panel assembled in Sweden (!) by the organiser Ali Dunnel who moved there whilst the commission was being created.
