KQ CLIMATE ACTION: Algae Materials and Ecosystems

4 May 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

- Free

Students from Central Saint Martins MA in Biodesign will lead this hands-on workshop at the Somers Town Living Centre on the uses of living organisms as exciting new sustainable materials.

During this workshop you will hear about how and why we can transform these living organisms into plant-positive materials. You will make bioplastics from algae-derived extracts, explore alginate-based threads and composite materials made from algae and waste.

*It is recommended that you bring your own mold for casting the bioplastic. This can be any tupperware or small container (best if plastic, glass or ceramic).

This workshop takes place at the Somers Town Living Centre. All ages and experience welcome.

To sign up, please email sarah@somerstown.org.uk


This event is part of the Somers Town Climate Action Market, in collaboration with Knowledge Quarter partners, and funded by the National Lottery. Throughout 2022, KQ partners will hold workshops and activities in Somers Town that will inspire people to think differently about waste and reuse, and take proactive steps to confront climate change.
