Place: In the Foyer.


Speaker: Nguyen-Thi Dang (Université Paris Saclay)

Title: Improvising a mathematical crochet course for beginners

Time: 14:15

Abstract: Inspired by the annular hyperbolic paper models of Thurston, Daina Taimina created in 1996 the first annular hyperbolic crochet model and later popularised the activity. I learned about the possibility of crocheting mathematical objects during the founding of Hegl. I will talk to you about two projects suitable for beginners: the Möbius strip and the annular hyperbolic coral.
