Suzanne Lee’s pioneering project will be demonstrated by growing a biomaterial using nothing other than some sugary tea and bacteria. Grown in flat sheets, sewn together or moulded over 3D shapes, this eco-textile can then be thrown on the compost heap at the end of it’s lifecycle! You will see the different stages of the process,watch how the growth baths are set-up, be able to feel some swatches and see examples of product prototypes.
Meet Suzanne Lee from Bio Couture and take part in her workshop at 11am -2pm Thursday 23rd September on the 100% Materials stand at 100%Design.
