Event description
Learn how to make Bio-Concrete with Artists/Scientists collective Para-Lab.

About this event

Participants will experiment with different materials, some brought along especially and some foraged, to attempt to make an alternative material to concrete (which is one of the main producers of carbon dioxide).

With an emphasis on carbon capture for the 'aggregate', participants can test an array of biological binders for the 'cement'. The materials are then heated using a heat plate which plugs into the mains. There will be little display containers for participants to take their samples home with them.

para-lab: The workshop is run by artists and scientists from Manchester-based collective para-lab. An exhibition of work from their ongoing collaborations is at Rogue Studios, 23-26 September. More details on their website http://para-lab.org
