Textile artist Jacqui Parkinson returns to the Cathedral to showcase her stunning exhibition, Threads Through Creation, which includes 12 large stunning panels depicting the Genesis story.

Inspired by the first pages in the Bible, she uses a vibrant combination of layers of silk, hand-dyed materials, metallic leathers and gold leaf, miles of thread – and more than eight million stitches!

The panels are huge – 1.5m/8ft high by as much as 4m/13ft wide – and vary in appearance from elemental pieces illustrating the first days to highly complex and rich work as we enter the Garden of Eden.

Jacqui’s work is designed to be accessible for viewers of all ages. Free entry. Donations invited.
