|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until 1st March 2022

Threads through Creation at Chester Cathedral.

Eight million stitches to create the world!

‘Threads through Creation’ is a spectacular display of twelve huge silk panels retelling the creation story from the first pages of the Bible.  It’s a vibrant combination of  silks, hand-dyed materials, metallic leathers, gold leaf – with miles of thread and eight million stitches!

Artist Jacqui Parkinson’s work is eye-catching and attractive, highly accessible for viewers of all ages.  She uses fascinating, unique techniques that produce a feast for the eye.

The enormous panels, 2.5m high and as wide as 3.5m, start with strong elemental pieces illustrating the first days of creation, onto complex and lush work as we enter the Garden of Eden.  A must-see exhibition!

Open Monday – Saturday 10am – 4pm, Sunday 12 noon – 4pm.
Wednesday 12 January – Tuesday 1 March 2022.
Entry by donation.
