Come and join us in the beautiful coastal town of Lyme Regis for a relaxed and creative morning learning the unique art of seaweed pressing. Melanie & Julia of molesworth & bird will guide you through the process, offering advice on how to forage for the best specimens as well as sharing the basic skills for successful seaweed pressing.

Classes will be limited to a maximum of 10 and everyone will go away with their own collection of glorious seaweed pressings ready to complete the simple pressing process at home.

What to expect:

  • 10.00 Meet and greet with an introduction by Melanie and Julia to the art of seaweed pressing
  • 10.30 A gentle walk down to the beach at low tide to forage for your seaweeds.
  • 11.30 Return to the studio for coffee and cake and a demonstration of our craft.
  • 12 - 13.00 Time for pressing your seaweeds with Julia and Melanie on hand for advice and guidance.

Course ends at 13.00 hrs

We will provide all the materials you need for your workshop.

Course includes:

  • Coffee/tea and cake
  • All Suitable papers and tools needed for pressing.
  • A sturdy folder specially designed to hold your artwork so that you can continue the pressing process at home.
  • A laminated simple seaweed identification chart.
  • A laminated instruction leaflet of our tried and tested seaweed pressing technique.
  • Special 10% discount at our molesworth & bird shop.

Please ensure you wear suitable clothing and footwear for the beach forage. The rocks can be very slippery at low tide... wellington boots are a good option. We will endeavour to go out whatever the British weather throws at us!
