About Drawn Thread Work
Drawn Thread Work is a technique that falls between embroidery and lace. Fabric threads are cut and withdrawn from the warp and/or weft of the ground fabric leaving open areas in the form of borders or grids. An embroidery thread is then used to decorate the remaining fabric threads and spaces in various ways, creating decorative, lacy patterns. Students need to be comfortable working on counted thread linen and have time to complete homework. (Drawn Thread Work is not to be confused with Pulled Thread Work, sometimes known as Drawn Work. In Pulled Thread Work no fabric threads are removed but they are pulled or ‘drawn’ together by embroidery stitches to create an open lacy effect).
Intermediate courses consist of six lessons. The course allows students to go beyond the basics of a technique, building up a collection of stitch samples and knowledge pertaining to that particular technique. Most courses require the student to produce two small pieces and one major piece. A ‘major piece’ does not mean that the student has to produce a huge piece of work, but rather a piece of work that demonstrates that the student has a good grasp of the skills learned for the technique. Student work is assessed by the tutor, and a date for assessment is usually set for approximately six weeks after the last class of the course
