Enter Materiom’s material kitchen: Join Zoë Powell at Store Store on Saturday 18th May to make bioplastic recipes! 

For this workshop, we’ll gain an insight into the world of biomaterials and focus on mixing, measuring and recipe making. Participants will have the opportunity to look through samples created with the recipes from the online open source library. The bioplastic recipes are all natural, vegan, not harmful to the environment using abundant local ingredients such as beetroot, sage, turmeric, agar agar and even waste like used coffee grounds.

Zoē Powell is a multi-disciplinary Designer-Maker and Textile Design graduate from Central Saint Martins. She has worked on commissions and projects internationally for a variety of industries including art, fashion and interiors. Zoē is now a Researcher and Workshop Facilitator of Biomaterials for open source platform Materiom.

Materiom is a research platform dedicated to the experimentation and development of open source biomaterial recipes made using locally abundant ingredients and life-friendly chemistry. It’s mission is to enable everyone, everywhere to feel they can participate in the next generation of materials for a circular economy.

The workshop is open to a maximum of 10 participants (age 16+) on a first come, first served basis. Attendance at the workshop costs £35 (£25 students) with all proceeds supporting the SCHOOL SCHOOL after school club for the local state school students.
