Event description

Description

Saturday 14 September
11am to 4.30pm
Screen printing workshops at London College of Communication (W316)
Free and open to all.




This will be a 5-hour hands-on biomaterials making session. Participants will be introduced to the opportunities of biomaterials and the vision of Materiom, and will be able to explore the Materiom materials library – a diverse collection of abundant natural ingredients, bio-plastics and composites. Participants will also be able to create their own biomaterials using Materiom recipes and explore the possible applications of biomaterials.

The day will be split in two with a lunch break included, providing an opportunity for further discussions about biomaterials, as well as planning for the rest of the workshop session. The workshop will be facilitated by the Materiom team, led by Zoë Powell and her fellow team member Pilar Bolumburu.

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. Our mission is to enable everyone, everywhere, to participate in the next generation of materials for a circular economy. Our international community of scientists, designers, engineers and artists develop, test and adapt our recipes to regenerate local cultures and bioregions.





This event is part of EMERGENCE, an exhibition and events programme presented by the Design School at London College of Communication, UAL exploring the role of design in working towards goals of sustainable production and consumption, biodiversity, inclusiveness, social cohesion and environmental sustainability.
