Jacqui Parkinson

Textile Artist

Threads through Creation

‘Threads through Creation’ is a spectacular sequence of twelve huge textile panels.  It’s an exuberant retelling of the creation story in the book of Genesis, a retelling which many visitors will find both moving and breathtaking.  Viewers are treated to a wonderful variety of colours, shapes, patterns - and course of lots of creatures!

Here is a sneak preview of the panels. Be sure to catch the exhibition in its full glory!

The exhibition is one of the largest textile projects by a single artist, ever.  It has taken Jacqui nearly three years.  It follows on from ‘Threads through Revelation’, her first huge exhibition which visited 14 cathedrals from 2016 to 2018, and was seen by more than 500,000 visitors.

An extensive tour of UK cathedrals is being planned from 2021 to 2024. Touring is scheduled start in the summer of 2021. 

Current plans from summer 2021 to spring 2022:
18th August to 26th September – SALISBURY CATHEDRAL
29th September to 7th November – LANCASTER PRIORY
2nd February to 13th March – ST ALBANS ABBEY   
16th March to 24th April – SOUTHWELL MINSTER

Other venues
As well as cathedrals, invitations are welcome from other sufficiently large exhibition and gallery sites. Please contact jacqui.textiles@gmail.com

Jacqui’s cathedrals exhibitions are a leap of faith.  Creating and touring is very costly.  She receives no public funding.
