Cornwall: angel and dragon [above]. St Martin’s Parish Church in Liskeard commissioned Jacqui for a design for a glass screen, as part of a major refurbishment. Completed in 2018, the design has been sandblasted onto the glass. The screen, in front of the War Memorial Chapel, creates a new space linking the old and new. Jacqui’s design imagines the battle in the heavens from the vision described in the book of Revelation.

Creative Workshops

As an experienced teacher, Jacqui can help groups and school classes to be very creative, and to produce results all can be proud of.  She has led sessions in primary and secondary schools, combining art, stitching and drama.

Devon: Schools Workshops — Street Banners
A set of banners for Cullompton town celebrations.  Jacqui took workshops in four primary schools, and made selections from the huge variety of images and patterns the children created.  From these she worked out a series of designs that retain the charm, naivete and fun of the children's original work.

Devon and Dorset: Schools Workshops — Art and Christianity
A series of sessions in primary schools based on 'Threads through Revelation'.  The children enjoyed an exploration of The Throne Room (Revelation 4) - they particularly liked the four living creatures who all have eyes all over and six wings! They produced spectacular mobiles.
