GLIMPS spreads knowledge and practical skills in biofabrication to all interested. This interdisciplinary field is welcoming to a wide range of backgrounds, from design to hobby enthusiasts and researchers.
We embrace peer-to-peer learning, serendipity, digital platforms and collective intelligence while keeping a rigorous and detailed approach. You will often meet our team both online and offline sharing knowledge in various formats. Have a look below at our current educational projects.
Mushroom growers, entrepreneurs and enthusiasts will learn all they need to be able to produce mycelium objects for their local markets, using their local resources. We provide documentation and tips & tricks we learned the hard way, so you don’t have to.

Designers, companies and design educators play an important role in striving for a sustainable world. With the MAAKBAAR project, BOS+ aims to sensitize the design sector and activate it around socially, economically and ecologically sustainable design.
In the wake of the Fungal Futures exhibition in Ghent, BOS+ and Glimps team up in organizing a symposium on recent experiences and lessons learned about mycelium material and sustainable design in education.
The event takes place on October 9th at De Tuin van Kina, from 14:00 to 18:00. More info and subscription (Dutch) can be found on the event page.
Sustainable progress is stronger when involving all of society. During our hands-on workshops people in diverse groups learn all about biofabrication in a practical session. We link concrete prototyping to a bold vision of sustainability, giving people an unforgettable experience whatever their expectations.
