Mushroom Madness

February 17, 2018, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Mushroom Madness

Uncover how mycelium, fungi and an assortment of other useful mushrooms can be used for things other than eating. Work with scientists and artisans to work with living materials in new and innovative ways.

To grow your creations, you’ll need a container, so make sure you bring a few with you to the workshop. Almost anything goes: glass jars, old biscuit tins, plastic takeaway containers, bowls, plates and even pots to make a plant plot. Bring a few different shapes and sizes.


  • Participants must be over 16 years of age
  • Enclosed, flat footwear must be worn at all times
  • Please register for an Edge Account before you arrive. You will need an account to complete the induction, assessment and make bookings for the equipment
