Seaweed Pressing Workshop at Mystic Museum of Art
Saturday, October 21, 10am - 2pm
Get in touch with the marine environment and make your own seaweed pressing in beautiful Mystic, Connecticut! Learn about the history of seaweed pressings from the Victorian era and interesting information about marine algae! I will demonstrate techniques in arranging the seaweed decoratively on paper using local seaweed collected from the RI and CT coastlines. Participants will make two pressings that can be framed and hung at home.
Seaweed pressing kits, which are reusable, can be purchased from the instructor, at $25 for two kits.
