The Ten Ton Press is a tool that can be used both publicly and collectively to produce a variety of products. It is mobile within walking distance and unfolds into an instant workstation with tables and seats.
Seed Bombs were some of
the first products to be produced with the press, using locally
harvested seeds and soil pressed into plywood moulds. These seed
bombs are used and disseminated in a number of ways. They were
thrown to plant an avenue of sunflowers in Hackney Wick, East
London, and travel the world via the International Village Shop
network. Seed bombs were produced across a number of different
events and sites to forge local and trans-local links connecting
places and people.
The 10ton press is an open resource provided by public works.
