Learn how to ferment and brew kombucha beverage. You will also take away your very own SCOBY(symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) to start brewing the drink at home.
Kombucha is raw fermented tea that boosts the body´s immune system and maintains a healthy gut with a variety of beneficial acids. The sweet sugary black tea is fermented by bacteria and yeast combination, known as SCOBY. The ingredients left to ferment in a warm environment for a period of time result in a delicious, refreshing and nutrient dense drink.
The SCOBY itself, once grown thick, can be developed into a novel bio-material.
Riina will teach step by step how to start fermenting your own kombucha and show what can be done with the leftover SCOBY. Riina has conducted an extensive material research at Green Lab in London, exploring the possibilities of the alternative material. She will present her research samples to offer food for thought and inspiration.
The workshop runs 1.5 h, including the time for questions and answers.
