Mycelium is the vegetative part of a fungus. Recently it has been used in combination with organic waste to create a new bio-based, renewable, home-compostable material that can replace plastics and other similar materials.

In this workshop we will learn the background and uses of Mycelium, its applications for artists, designers, and architects, and how to work with it as a material. Participants will create a mixture of mycelia, agricultural waste and starch and learn how to grow it to create forms and serve different uses.
