WO Assistant checklist - Co-Design with Microbes (Kimchi / Sauerkraut / Pickles / Water Kefir) (draft)

with Saskia Frederiks

In the workshops Co-Design with Microbes (Kimchi, Sauerkraut, Pickles and Water Kefir), Saskia Fredericks will teach participants the basic principles of fermentation. The participants will then apply those techniques and get to take home a jar of their fermented produce.

As a workshop assistant, your role is to set up the tables, chairs, knives and cuttingboards in Clean Lab, take care of ticketing, help Saskia a little during the workshop and clean up afterwards. Don't hesitate to print this assistant checklist and have it with you on the day of workshop!

Here is some information about ticketing when you are a workshop assistant.
