Jo Atherton weaves with flotsam

Jo Atherton weaves with flotsam

Scouring the British coastline for flotsam, Jo Atherton collects fishing line, netting and other orphaned objects to interpret stories of our time. This website is the home of her popular blog, Flotsam Weaving where she documents her beachcombing finds which contribute to her artistic practice. These signifiers of our anthropocene are curated by the waves before Jo discovers them on the tideline and transforms them into both intricate prints and vibrant tapestries.
