Year 12 A’level Art students took part in a weaving workshop with artist Jo Atherton.
Atherton is an artist who creates fascinating and playful tapestries using flotsam and materials found from scouring the coastlines of the UK.
She is fascinated by the curiosities that the tides wash up on to our beaches, the history associated with them, where they came from and who they belonged to.
Jo’s work is currently on display at the Artismeet gallery in Watersmeet until 26th February 2026.More about Jo can be found at www.flotsamweaving.com
