Discover the maths behind craft and the craft behind maths at the Christchurch Maths Craft Day on Sunday July 1, 2018 in The Great Hall at The Arts Centre. We're delighted to be bringing this event back after the popularity of the 2017 event.
Featuring a collection of craft creation stations as well as public talks by mathematicians and crafters (see below for more information), the celebration of maths promises to engage people of all ages. Knit a mathematical knot, crochet a Möbius strip, fold an origami octahedron, draw an impossible triangle, colour a Latin square, or listen to guest speakers talk about the fascinating relationships between maths and craft. Enthusiastic volunteers, experienced in both mathematics and crafts, will make you feel at home no matter what your age or background. And there will be lots of space and seating, so you can stay and craft all day!
Open to everyone: experts and amateurs, maths-fans and maths-phobes, the crafty and the curious. No booking is required. Entry to the event is free. More information will be available closer to the event.
