Gone seaweeding. I'm taking a summer break and any orders placed today will be dispatched on my return, August 5, 2024. I will be responding to messages though, so feel free to get in touch using the contact page. Thank you for your understanding

Seaweed

The Art of Second
Glances

Seaweed is an often overlooked treasure of the ocean — timeless, surprising and intricate — and the traditional art of seaweed pressing brings it to vivid new life.

My name is Portia Knight, and one of my life's great pleasures is foraging and pressing seaweed on the northern coasts of Scotland. Initially a creative pastime, it's become something even more meaningful that continues to fascinate me with each new pressing.
