Biofabrication and Mycomaterials course
February 3 @ 6:30 pm - April 5 @ 6:30 pm$200
Biofabrication and recycling with fungi
Biofabrication is a rapidly growing industry that aims to replace plastics and other unsustainable materials with renewable and biodegradable materials. This mixed-delivery course will cover everything you need to know to get started in the industry. It includes the fundamentals of mycology, cultivating fungi, laboratory work with fungi and biofabrication of sustainable materials. The course has 10 hours of theoretical components, 10 hours of practical components on general laboratory work and growing fungi and a further 10 hours of practical components focussing specifically on biofabrication.
We are running this course together with our partner organisations Haddon Community Learning Centre and myco-materials company Fungi Solutions. You will get an opportunity to work in a laboratory that produces many different types of myco-materials for professional clients.
Every Tuesday at 6pm from February 1 – April 5
