What will you do?

The workshop is lead by Antoni Gandia and takes place in Mediamatic Fabriek. First you will pasteurize the substrate in order to prevent moulds and contaminant bacteria growing between our mushrooms. Then, in the cleanroom, you will inoculate the substrate with mushroom spawn. Meanwhile Antoni will tell you everything about mushroom cultivation and its endless possibilities. Finally you take home your own growing bag. The mycelial network needs some time to colonize the substrate. after which it will start growing its fruits. That's right, your very own cultivated mushrooms.


In order to do contamination-free experiments with fungi and other living organisms Mediamatic built a mobile clean lab. During the workshop you will work in this semi-professional lab learning the basics of the aseptic working techniques.
