Seaweed: foraging, collecting, pressing by Melanie Molesworth & Julia Bird

Published by Pavilion (Harper Collins)

A beautifully presented, comprehensive visual guide to seaweed by us at Molesworth & BirdSeaweed will inspire you to look beyond the tangled piles of seaweed washed up at high tide, to discover its exceptional beauty and appreciate its many uses. The book celebrates the unique appeal of the plants and showcases the myriad ways to bring their beauty indoors, as we provide step-by-step activities so you can create your own pressings at home. Whether pressing a deep khaki green Peacock’s Tail seaweed or creating a stunning blue cyanotype with Eelgrass, the possibilities are endless with this seashore bounty.

The book is packed with glorious photography of the UK coastlines where the seaweeds can be foraged, alongside stylish interiors, and scenes of beach cook-outs and wild swimming spots. It also includes a library of pressed seaweeds presented in colour categories, with notes for identification and use. There is expert guidance on collecting seaweeds, and it will show how foraged seaweeds can be used at home for cooking, dyeing and printing fabrics, and as part of your skincare routine. It explores the fascinating history of seaweed collecting and investigates its potential as a healthy food source and sustainable material, whether foraged or farmed.
