Artist Bridget Wilkinson, jewellery maker Smugglers Treasures, fibre artist Kittie Kipper and mixed media artist Zoe Taylor work in different ways but all take their inspiration from the sea. Their bold paintings, beautifully crafted jewellery, innovative fibre art and sculpture are created utilising found and recycled materials such as driftwood, natural pigments, clay, sea glass, recycled silver and the lost nets of fishermen known as 'ghost nets'. In this way, their creations make use of 'what the tide left behind', exploring notions of environmental fragility and sustainability.
