Enter Materiom’s material kitchen: Join Zoë Powell at Store Store on Saturday 25th May to make your own bioplastic recipe! In this workshop we’ll focus on making some of our ingredients for our biomaterials, exploring different recipes and creating your own recipe based on our material library online.
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.
