Bioplastics co-making workshops
Teachers: Alex Murray-Leslie, Nina Haarsacker & guest teachers
Location: FORMLAB, 2nd floor, Central Building, Architecture Dept, Gloshaugen.
This series of 4 workshops offers the possibility for a limited number of participants to experiment with bioplastic recipes
including; kelp, spirulena and naturally occurring pigments. Bioplastics are bio based polymers and in this workshop we’ll be creating Bioplastics that are fully biodegradable and derived from a biomass, promoting a circular economy. Some of the possible outcomes include using bioplastic sheets as Architectural building materials (in relation to
smart cities research) in tandem with computer aided design and manufacturing techniques.
