Topological Crochet

Sunday, March 26 at 4:00 pm ET

(in person)



Are you a topologist who's keen to make an interesting mapping cylinder, a geometer who likes to see a beautiful surface spanning in space, a polyhedra worshipper, a knotter tyer who would love to expand your portfolio?  Maybe you are a crocheter in search of a novelty project, or a fan of Bathsheba Grossman, Charles Perry, and Brent Collins and would love to make small models of their work by yourself?  If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, or if you just want to crochet some interesting and beautiful mathematical surfaces, topological crochet is perfect for you!  Join artist Shiying Dong for an evening of math creativity.  With simple building blocks of chains stitches, single crochets, double crochets, and more, we will build topologically nontrivial, visually pleasing yarn sculptures.

Feel free to bring your own favorite yarn and crochet hook; we'll also provide worsted weight 4-ply wool with size 7 (4.5mm) hooks.  Basic knowledge of crochet is preferred: if you’ve ever finished a small crochet project, you’re all set.  (You should be comfortable holding a crochet hook steadily while keeping good yarn tension.)
