Thread work – An amazing art, which can only be compared with drawing pictures with the only difference that instead of colors, threads are used here. Unlike many other types of needlework, the nitcogram has gained popularity in our country relatively recently, over the past few years, but has already become quite a common type of creativity.
As a kind of art, the thread work was adopted from the people of Uicholi living in western and central Mexico and in addition to a thread mosaic engaged in such other kinds of needlework as weaving, embroidery, lacework and beading. Pictures of Uicholi in the technique of thread work are mainly made of woolen yarn, are of ethnic character and have a very peculiar appearance. Traditionally, such paintings are made on a square or round plate, in the center of which a hole is made. On both sides the plaque is covered with a mixture of beeswax and pine resin, on which are glued multi-colored woolen threads.

It allows to develop figurative thinking in the child, as well as to develop motor skills and creative perception of the surrounding world. But this technique is not only for children, it also suits us, people at a certain age. Nice occupation nitcograph for people who have suffered a stroke and other similar diseases.

Thread work is a graphic image made with threads on almost any solid substrate – cardboard, velvet paper or other thick paper, as well as on volumetric surfaces ..

In our time, the art of thread design finds its application in decorating the interior of residential buildings, decorating gift packages, postcards, making souvenirs. Many prefer to design in this technique small household items – bookmarks, a variety of pictures, caskets and even use to decorate clothes.

And yet, traditionally this is a picture, but we have just a separate flat figure. Such figures can be cut out of a packing cardboard on a different theme: Easter, New Year, etc.


Basic materials and tools:

Basis (cardboard, fiberboard, wood)
PVA glue, carpenter or equivalent (adhesive-type titanium can be used)
remnants of woolen yarn (To create flat paintings, use a thread of the same thickness, for relief work -. the different thicknesses remarkable effect can give a “hairy” and “curly” thread, but the novice masters are better to abandon the use of thread with a non-smooth structure, so how to deal with they are much more complicated.)
Pencil or pen (for etching circuit
