In this 3-day hands-on workshop series, attendees will grow their own custom packing material using mycelium—an eco-conscious, biodegradable material made from mushroom tissue that many believe will eventually replace styrofoam. Additionally, you’ll learn about a range of eco friendly packaging options and where to source them. Prior to the first session, you’ll be shipped a box* containing samples of the packaging discussed, along with all the mycelium materials needed to set up your in-home lab (all you need at home is a table to work on, and a cool dark space to let your mycelium grow). Sessions, conducted over Zoom, will combine lecture and hands-on demonstrations to follow along with. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have your very own custom mycelium packaging! This course will help you source eco-friendly packaging options, while giving you an in-depth understanding of how mycelium packaging is created, so that you can better design, innovate, and source custom solutions for your unique product! *The material fee is $45 per person.
