Knitted bible exhibition at Barrow church
Last updated at 11:45, Wednesday, 09 July 2014
THIRTY-THREE biblical stories have been brought to life in the form of knitted figures. The exhibition, which is showing at the Trinity Church in Abbey Road in Barrow, has been touring the country since 2008 and will remain in Barrow until July 15.
Some of the stories covered in this exhibition include Noah and his ark, Daniel in the lion’s den and Jonah and the whale.
The idea to recreate these stories with a woollen make over happened when a small scale knitting project, organised by Saint George’s United Reformed Church in Hartlepool, spiralled out of control.
Aileen Whittaker, 70, one of the knitters, said: “About 60 people were involved in the process. It just snowballed once we decided to do more than just the Last Supper.
“We had a very inspiring minister who kept us going as it did get rather intense at times.”
The Knitted Bible exhibition is open from 10am until 4pm. Admission is free, but donations are welcome.
