5 December - 13 February 2021  |  Drawn Thread: Celebrating FIFTY years of FEMINISM & FIBRE  |  
Drawn Thread is the first of five iterations of The Hand-made Tale; 50 years of craft and design in Queensland, a series of curatorial offerings celebrating artisan's influential 50 years in operation.

Over the course of the last half-century, artisan has championed an ongoing conversation around feminism, fibre and emancipation and draws attention to the necessity to keep this dialogue alive in Drawn Thread. Queensland practitioners who have exhibited with artisan throughout its history are interspersed with national artists whose practices champion, advocate and challenge a broad audience's relationship to feminist fibre art. Drawn Thread is a celebration of, and call to arms for, the continuation of a feminist textile platform to highlight the struggle of women in the hierarchy of the art and craft world.
