Mind the Fungi: cultivation course at TopLab (days 3 and 4)

27 April - 18 May, 2019
TopLab is hosting a mushroom home-cultivation course in collaboration with Art Laboratory Berlin and the faculty of Applied and Molecular Microbiology (TU Berlin)

In the course, participants learn how to isolate and grow mushrooms for different purposes. They learn to create and shape own mycelium based objects, such as packaging materials, furniture, building materials and even leather. Additionally, they learn how to set up a culture to grow edible mushrooms.

Participants also participate in a mycelium packaging experiment, grow together a mycelium box and ship it per post to test the material's resistance.27 April - 18 May, 2019
