The Seaweed Institute
Foraging and cookery workshop

Sunday 17 September, 12.30pm

The Seaweed Institute is run by the interdisciplinary duo Kerry Holbrook and Ruth Klückers on the south coast of Cornwall. The project connects people, seaweed and the intertidal space. With backgrounds in design and ecology, both work as seaweed harvesters.

At spring low tide we explore the intertidal zone in St Mawes Harbor, searching for the best edible seaweeds. We discuss tides, sustainable harvesting practice and the cultural history of seaweed. After on the beautiful weather front terrace of Hotel Tresanton, we collectively cook a lunch from what we have foraged. The food we create together demonstrates diverse ways to use seaweed in your own cooking.
