Touches of heaven in textile art at Southwell Minster
More than 3000 visitors attended the extraordinary exhibition ‘Threads through Revelation’ at Southwell Minster in Nottinghamshire last year, by textile artist Jacqui Parkinson. Now Jacqui is back, bringing a new show in the autumn featuring two displays in one, called ‘Tree of Life’ and ‘Open Heaven.’ It will be a first for the Minster as it marks the starting point for a UK cathedral tour.
Exhibition dates:
The opening exhibition of Tree of Life with Open Heaven

will be at Southwell Minster from Tuesday 15 October - Sunday 1 December 2019.  Then the show will tour during 2020.
