Did you know you can grow your own cloth-like fabric using a Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast (SCOBY)? I will teach you how! I can teach you how to grow your own cloth/microbial cellulose using a mixture of the "mother" from kombucha or apple cider vinegar and other simple ingredients. It is a great vegan alternative to leather and is quite a fascinating art.
For microbial cellulose growth, you will need:
1) a large bowl
2) Bragg’s brand Apple cider vinegar
3) raw Kombucha (plain flavor)
4) glass jars
6) rubber bands to fit the jars
8) white sugar
9) a dark area to place the jars in
*Make sure to not expose the mixture to metal*
This is a great experience for school-age children (age 8 and up) and adults alike! Plant and food based art is my specialty and I'd love to get you started on making something really awesome.
