Join us at The Walled Garden to learn how to hand press seaweed foraged off the British coastline.
Tamra founder Louisa will take you through the old process of identifying, arranging and pressing seaweed to create beautiful pieces of art to take home with you. You will also be given your own press (included in ticket price) so that you are able to continue to press seaweeds at home.
You will learn how beautiful and intricate some lesser known seaweeds are and how to exemplify them through pressing. Louisa will give you all the tips so that you can continue to forage responsibly. Join in on this creative and calming workshop and get closer to nature.
All materials required for the workshop will be provided, along with refreshments of tea and coffee.
Tamra are pressers and preservers of beautiful specimens from the natural world.
Tamra founder Louisa has been practising the art of pressing since childhood. Tamra’s mission is to exemplify the beauty and vast range of seaweeds found on our British coastline.
Each seaweed artwork is carefully picked and meticulously pressed by hand. This means that no one piece is the same.
