TEXTILES: PAINTING WITH THE NEEDLE
Exhibition at Durham Cathedral Nov 5th - 11th Feb
Durham Cathedral's latest display in the Open Treasure Collections Gallery is Textiles - Painting with the Needle. This is a unique opportunity to see exquisite textiles from the Cathedral's collections, representing some of the finest church needlework from the last 1,100 years. Marvel at historic textiles, including the Charles I Cope commissioned for the visit of King Charles I in 1633 and the Bishop of Durham's Coronation Cope, worn at the coronation of the last four British monarchs, and last worn by Bishop Michael Ramsay at Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953. Contemporary pieces add to this exciting exhibition from the Cathedral Broderers and a tapestry by Grayson Perry 'Death of a Working Hero' created for his recent Channel 4 documentary series Grayson Perry: All Man.
