Threads through Creation


Tuesday 17th August 2021 to Sunday 26th September 2021

About the event

These 12 huge embroidered panels, some as large as 8ft by 11ft, were made by Devon based textile artist Jacqui Parkinson.


The works take as their subject the Christian story of the creation of the world, with each panel interpretating verses from book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible that tells the 7-day the creation story.


Threads Through Creation took three years to prepare – a vibrant combination of quilting, applique and specially dyed fabric, including silk, and eight million stitches.


“Ive taken the first few pages of the Bible and tried to bring a little of their wonderful extravagance to life with a sparkle,” explains artist Jacqui.  “Its a lovely story, full of love and promise, which we can all do with these days.”
