Good Grief

Jacqui Parkinson is a textile artist whose large-scale work has toured more than 30 cathedrals, including Guildford Cathedral, in the UK. Jacqui's Christian faith underpins her life and work. One of her most recent shows, thought to be the largest textile project ever by a single artist, 'Threads through Revelation', was seen by more than half a million visitors while it toured between 2016 and 2018.

When her first husband, Rob Frost, died of cancer in 2007, Jacqui used stitching as a medium for working through her grief. She stitched a series of vintage handkerchiefs with words and images. Not originally intended for public view, she later was persuaded to put them into an exhibition, entitled 'good grief?'

St. Mary's, in association with Common Ground, will be hosting this exhibition to coincide with All Souls/All Saints .
