Spalting Fungi & Live Inoculations in Your Work: A Fundraiser for Seri's Research with Seri Robinson July 23 - 24, 2022

about this workshop

Learn the history and modern science of DIY spalting. Mixing lecture with laboratory processes, students will learn about the fungi that cause spalting, their growth conditions, learn how to keep them alive, and to pair them to achieve the best patterns. Students will get access to the entire spalting fungal catalogue and will learn all the techniques needed for DIY at home spalting. Note: this class will focus on live fungal spalting, not the extracted pigments. (The class on using extracted pigments is offered for a week, right after this one!)
