Textile artist Tracey Franklin designs dedicated at Durham Cathedral
NEW altar frontals and vestments have been dedicated at Durham Cathedral.
The items were designed by Tracey Franklin, a Durham City-based textile artist with a studio in Fowler’s Yard who is head of the Cathedral Broderers group.
They are made of unbleached linen, the traditional material for Lenten Array, and depict a crown of thorns and the grasses of the wilderness, both representing Jesus’ consecration and suffering and also renewal and forgiveness.
They were dedicated during a Sung Eucharist service held in the Cathedral on Ash Wednesday, which included the placing of an ash cross on the forehead of each member of the congregation as a reminder and celebration of human mortality.
