Multi-species entanglements: Forming with Mycelium • working with environmentally friendly, renewable materials
December 4th at InterAccess
SOLD OUT Special workshop for the Fantastic Fungi Futures events taking place around the movie screening at HotDocs
1 round planter growth form
1 bag of substrate inoculated with Mycelium
This workshop includes everything you need to grow a round planter, as well as hand-sculpt a small form plus, a full bag of substrate inoculated with mycelium! Suggestions on how to grow other forms or grow onto various armatures (3D printed, hand-knit/crocheted, wood structures, etc) will be discussed.
Various mycelium can be used in industrial design, art, architecture – the possibilities are seemingly endless!
Mycelium= the mass of interwoven filamentous hyphae that forms especially the vegetative portion of the thallus of a fungus and is often submerged in another body (as of soil or organic matter or the tissues of a host) aka mushroom roots
Artist-instructor Tosca Teran works with Mycelium collaboratively –
creating the Midnight Mushroom Music Podcast.
This year (2019) Tosca and Andrei (together forming Nanotopia) are offering workshops making Bio-Sonification Modules out of their shared studio space, Interaccess.org, UofT and abroad.
Tosca was recently interviewed by, Ecovative Designs. Check out the

Mycelium is the vegetative part of a fungus, consisting of a network of fine white filaments called hyphae aka Mushroom roots.
