Upcoming events for MYCOMYTHOPOEIA
Updated: Oct 31
My MYCOMYTHOPOEIA residency with George Street Community Bookshop is now in full swing, and I have a handful of free events for you to take part in.
Come explore the bookshop through the lens of mushrooms and mycorrhizal networks, and let's create some fruiting bodies together 🍄🍄🍄
If you live in Glossop (or if you don't, come visit!), here's what you can take part in:
The Mushroom Spotters Map
Drop by the bookshop anytime in Oct/Nov to add to a mushroom spotters map – a collective impression of Glossop’s mushrooms and ancient mycelial networks.
March of the Mycelium: A Wander Walk – Sat 4th Nov
Join me on a creative stroll around Glossop, inspired by ancient mycelial pathways! The route is based on the mushroom spotters map, and (weather permitting) we'll do a little sketching, photography and writing as we go.
Mushroom Growing in the Bookshop – Sat 4th & Sun 5th Nov
Come do a little mushroom-sowing with me on Bonfire weekend! I'll be demo-ing my bookshroom WIPs and walking you through how to create your own. Books and mushroom growing supplies will be provided.
Nature-inspired printmaking sessions – Sat 11th Nov
Try your hand at cyanotype printmaking in the bookshop. This technique is almost 200 years old and was once used as a way to document natural specimens.
Creative writing workshops – Sat 18th Nov
Flex your mycelial mind in an experimental creative writing workshop. Reach your mental 'hyphae' out into the bookshop to find inspiration 'nutrients' for new pieces of work.
I'm also in the process of arranging a very special 'in conversation' towards the end of November. Taking place at the bookshop, it'll be me and a panel of local people whose practice crosses over with nature. Watch this space!
