Scouring the Cornish and Norfolk coastlines for flotsam, artist Jo Atherton collects fishing line, netting and other unexpected items to create colourful tapestries.

A collection of Atherton's flotsam weavings are on display at the museum. Bringing together fragments of the orphaned, forgotten and ignored, the tapestries give new significance to unvalued objects.
