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 beginning as a creative pastime for me to enjoy during fine weather, it's become something even more meaningful that continues to fascinate me with each new pressing and print.
It's an art form that encourages slowing down, looking closer and appreciating the details — and I enjoy sharing discoveries with fellow enthusiasts across the world.
The seaweeding journey is an ongoing one, where chance encounters meet careful choices and artistic craft.

Thoughts, discoveries and updates from me and the wider seaweeding community.
Foraged from passing storms and ebbing tides, pressed seaweed has a surprising variety of form, colour and texture — rewarding careful selection and precise process.
