Gethsemane Garments

A collection of four Gethsemane Garments by Peter Privett which show pain, suffering, hope and renewal. The garments – red, sackcloth, green and white - comprise cotton, silk, wool, synthetic fabrics (dyed, painted and printed), recycled clothes, shells, beads and muslin.

About Peter Privett

Peter was a teacher in Birmingham and Walsall in the late 1960s, when art and craft was a means of exploring many aspects of the curriculum. In 1975 Peter went to Theological College where he was taught to spin. Over the years as a priest, Diocesan Education Adviser and retreat leader, Peter has often offered art projects as an opportunity for people to explore their thoughts and feelings in a safe and protected environment. Peter currently lives in Rugby and is engaged in developing and supporting children's spirituality, through writing, lecturing and leading training events. He helps also with the pastoral care at the Parish Church of St Andrew.
