FEMeeting Taos Workshop- Interactions with Living Leather
Call for Participation
We invite you to participate in our workshop on “Interactions with Living Leather” at FEMeeting 2023 in Taos. The goal of this studio is to facilitate a space in which creative practitioners can collaborate, explore, make, and discuss SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast) – a sustainable biofilm, grown in kombucha tea, that acts similarly to traditional leathers when harvested and dried. Together we will explore how SCOBY can be customized through various fabrication techniques, and how to create interactive SCOBY interfaces. Through hands-on group activities with SCOBY, we will teach participants about sustainability, slowness, and biomaterials in the context of technology, design, and art. Register Here
