What you will do

The workshop will start with an informative session where Wouter introduces different growth media, substrates, cultivation methods and fungal strains, as well as the potential of mycelium. There will be enough time to ask any questions you might have about mushrooms. You will take home a bag of substrate to cultivate oyster mushrooms and with knowledge on how to extract spawn from fully grown mushroom.

Oyster mushrooms peeping out of their bags with LED grow light. - In the Aquaponics hut we keet the temeperatures high by not ventilating too much in the cold season. But our plants need CO2. So we grow mushrooms in the same room. Mycelium produces CO2. So our plant feel good and we get to eat more mushrooms.

Grow your own oyster mushrooms - It is said that the mushroom, and especially Mycelium has the potential to replace all sorts of (harmful) materials like plastics and batteries. Here at Mediamatic we are interested in the cultural and artistic implications of this 'new' bio-material and conducted a workshop to explore the possibilities. During this introduction course we learned how to cultivate the Oyster Mushroom at home and by doing so gained a better understanding of the potential of this organism.
