Threads through Creation
a stunning exhibition of huge silk panels
Visit Chester Cathedral, and you’ll be able to enjoy a spectacular art exhibition. ‘Threads through Creation’ is a stunning display of twelve huge embroidered panels that explore the story of creation.
It’s a great chance to take non-Christian friends to share something really significant.
Inspired by Genesis, the first book in the Bible, textile artist Jacqui Parkinson reimagines this ancient story in a vibrant combination of silks, hand-dyed materials, metallic leathers, gold leaf – with eight million stitches!


It’s a deeply thought out project by a Christian artist whose work has been displayed in most of the cathedrals of Enland. The huge 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.


Jacqui’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.
Jacqui says, ‘My work is all about engaging people with the Bible story, offering encouragement and opening up opportunities for interesting discussions. In this exhibition, my aim is to capture the wonderful extravagance of the creation story - and to delight people who view the panels. Despite Adam and Eve’s fall from grace, it remains a story of love and promise, something we can all do with these days.’
