Recording of Folded Folly with Paula Krieg

This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Thursday, August 12, 2021.

Appropriate for ages 7 and above.

While indulging in the folly of attempting to create an impossible shape with folded paper, artist and educator Paula Krieg stumbled upon a novel flexagon that not only shape-shifts to expose hidden faces, but also hides and reveals small pockets and winged handles, adding more dimension to this already-mysterious surface.  Join Paula as she demonstrates the astonishingly elegant folding method used to construct this playful mathematical toy, then make your own Folded Folly flexagon as a keepsake of this uniquely engagingly evening.
