Ready to take circular economy to the next level? Want to make our world a better place by growing design? You have come to the right place.

Help us reshape the world with building blocks created by fungi. This novel technology has been evolving greatly over the past years and professionalism is now starting to become the key to success.

In 2018, Glimps organizes the two first editions of the Mycomaterials course. Now, Mycelia and Glimps are joining hands to create the world’s first complete course on this fascinating topic.

Training in cooperation with Winnie Poncelet, co-founder of Glimps – Design and Strategy in Biofabrication, Belgium.


At this moment, we will not organise this course. As soon as we do, we will inform you through the newsletter and other channels.
