Crochet coral reef is coming to Dublin

I’ve written previously about the crocheted coral reef created by Margaret Wertheim and her sister Cristine as part of their Institute for Figuring. Well, now it’s hopping the pond and heading to Science Gallery (of which I’ve also often written):

20:02:10 13:00 – 15:00

In preparation for the upcoming exhibition “Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef” we’re delighted to welcome Margaret Wertheim back to Science Gallery this weekend. At the workshop, participants will join Margaret to finalise the process of making an “Irish Reef”, which will be exhibited alongside the international crochet reef collection at Science Gallery from March 2010. To book your place at the workshop please go to

LOVE LAB: THE SCIENCE OF DESIRE continues in Science Gallery until March 12th. Please note that this is a lab in the gallery, aimed at producing real publishable research.

    1. Thanks Daina! Margaret Wertheim is a huge proponent of your work, but it’s nice to know you’ve put out your own book out on the topic. 🙂
