Maths Craft Day

Activity

Discover the maths behind craft and the craft behind maths at Christchurch’s first Maths Craft Day, Sunday June 18 in The Great Hall at The Arts Centre.

Featuring seven craft creation stations, as well as public talks by mathematician crafters, the day-long celebration of maths promises to engage people of all ages.

Make a Möbius strip, crochet a hyperbolic plane, build a fractal sculpture, fold an origami octahedron, and listen to talks about the connections between maths and crafts.

Explore the newly opened Teece Museum at the Arts Centre and discover the ancient relationship between mathematics and craftsmanship.

Open to everyone: experts and amateurs, maths-fans and maths-phobes, the crafty and the curious.
