Handmade seaweed press in a portable and convenient A4 size. Made with FSC certified birch plywood, these presses are ideal for seaweeders of all abilities and levels of experience.

Size of the press: approx 250mm x 340mm x 132mm. Will press up to 12 x A4 sheets. Instructions included.

Important update: Unfortunately, it is no longer viable for me to produce and sell Ebb and Upwell seaweed presses. I apologise if this comes as disappointing news. As ever, you can contact me with your seaweed pressing queries, and I will do my best to help. Thank you.

are Discoveries Illuminated

Ebb & Upwell presses allow you to produce original works of art — each defined by the chosen seaweed, the pressing process itself and all manner of little nuances.

For me, the joy of this art form is found in discovering species you've not yet tried, noticing differences and experimenting with colours, textures and shapes.
