Workshop: Mushroom Parade Costume Creations with Riitta Ikonen at the Ah Haa School

In this free crafting session, create your very own wearable fungus with usual and unusual art supplies with the internationally renowned wearable sculpture artist and two-time Telluride Mushroom Festival Costume Competition winner Riitta Ikonen.

Pop in and make a quick-fix fungal suit for the parade, meet your soulmates who also want to play the parts in the life cycle of dung-loving fungi, or bring your half-finished caps and we’ll help you fill them with sporulating spores. Bring along anything from fishing poles to bicycle helmets and turn them into all-immersive cordyceps bodystockings, head covering caps, trailing-mycelium, and full-body wearable microscopes.
After this fantastic fungi festivity, you will be ready to march Telluride Main Street in the Mushroom Parade or even win this year’s gold medal at the Telluride Mushroom festival’s costume competition.

Supplies and comfortable assembly location will be provided by Ah Haa Art School but space s limited.
