‘Do the Little Things’ is an installation made by artist Jake Lever for the Chapel of Gethsemane. It comprises of a multitude of tiny boats made of wire, tissue paper and gold leaf.
The title refers to the words of the Saint David who, in 589 AD, encouraged his followers to “be joyful, keep the faith and do the little things”. Throughout the pandemic Jake has been making these fragile boats, sending them by post to those he cares about. Others have joined in and similar vessels are being sent across the globe as tokens of love, solidarity and connection.
Please note: All visitors will be required to book a free ‘Entry and Exhibition’ ticket to visit Coventry Cathedral. The Cathedral is open from 10am to 4pm from Monday to Saturday, and from 12.30pm to 3pm on Sundays.
