Enter Materiom’s material kitchen during this online Bioplastic Workshop with Zoë Powell. You will be introduced to the opportunities of biomaterials and the vision of Materiom through its online materials library. Zoë will go through a diverse collection of abundant natural ingredients, bio-plastics and -composites. Participants will have the opportunity to follow a demo by Zoë Powell using a Materiom material recipe and create a biomaterial test at home.
