The display, running until Friday, December 11, is part of the Cook Museum’s exhibition entitled ‘First Flowers: Joseph Banks’ Florilegium’.

Flora and Thread is a tent covered with embroidered plants from Cook’s first voyage on the Endeavour.

A spokesman said: “Almost 50 local people volunteered to create beautifully these embroidered plants and flowers from the Endeavour voyage, and the piece of textile art shows the creativity of our Whitby community.”

Pannett Park has also created a new garden trail to accompany the exhibition.

People can follow a trail sheet which will show them where the plants are to be found, along with information about where they originally came from.

Visitors can ask for a free trail sheet at the gallery or find it at the park’s notice board. The signs will be on display until December.
