An exhibition of textile art has opened at Peterborough Cathedral to help visitors to look afresh at the Easter story.
“The Journey” is a series of sewn, embroidered, photo printed and appliqué panels made by artist Jacqui Frost.
They use dramatic combinations of hand-sewn words, everyday objects and familiar pictures to help the viewer to think about Jesus’ journey to his crucifixion.
Jonathan Baker, canon missioner at the cathedral, said: “The exhibition is based on the traditional Christian ‘Stations of the Cross’, a series of pictures showing the events of Christ’s final hours which can be used in meditation and prayer.
“But you don’t need to know that to find something of interest here. I would encourage anyone to pop in and have a look at these thought-provoking images.”
