Think maths, physics and crafternoons have nothing in common? Think again! In this workshop, we will use knitting, crochet and origami to explain complex mathematical and physical ideas and theories. Let your hands do the learning by knitting a hyperbolic plane or creating platonic solids out of origami. What on earth are they, you ask? Join our mathematical crafternoon to find out.

Come and go as you please throughout the day, and hear talks by artists, mathematicians and physicists during the event.

This event is organised as part of the Perfection exhibition of Science Gallery Melbourne.
