Embroidery Artisan

I feel peace when I draw.

Newal is Palestinian and has lived in refugee camps all her life.

Newal works as an embroidery artisan for Shatila Studio. She is Palestinian and was born in the Nahr al-Bared Palestinian camp in North Lebanon. When her house was destroyed during the 2007 Lebanon conflict, she moved to Shatila. In 2018 Newal took part in an art therapy course offered by Basmeh & Zeitooneh. The face on our ‘Newal bag’ belongs to one of her self-portraits.
