Abstract: In response to the tendency of making to control and harness the material world, we propose the ‘creative pluriverse,’ which can fit many worlds, as a framework to design and study the possibility of multispecies and multimattered creativity. We ground this concept in process philosophies, theories of embodied cognition, and ecological materialism to advance a posthumanist conception of creative making. Using a design-based research approach, we reimagine making, particularly biomaking with fungi, as a ‘dialogue without words’ that nurtures didactic tensions and relations between learners and other-than-human entities and elements. By examining a series of dialogues–between a boy, a tree, clay, and fungi–we observe instances of learning through multispecies creative production and discuss implications for learning design in hybrid pluriverse worlds.
