Location: London Knowledge Lab
Further Info: An LKL Maths-Art 'Hands-on' event
Host/Speaker: Host Dr Phillip Kent, Speakers John Wootton, Tim Rowett, Tony Willis, Richard Ahrens and John Sharp
Date and Time:
Thursday, 09 December 2010, 18:00 - 20:00
In keeping with the time of year, our pre-Xmas seminar is less formal
than usual. We will have mostly hands-on explorations of different
aspects of paper folding/mathematics and art. We will also show some
excerpts from the movie "Between the Folds" on the London Knowledge Lab
We have two Origami presenters: JOHN WOOTTON will be making some modular
origami and showing some examples of his work. TIM ROWETT from Grand Illusions has some different ideas.
The other presenters have different takes on paper folding and
sculpting. TONY WILLS (who gave a seminar for us on "Developable
surfaces and D-Forms" in June 2007) will show you how to make D-Forms.
RICHARD AHRENS has some Danish novelties with an Xmas flavour. JOHN
SHARP will show some foldings with paper strips and business cards.
We hope you will join in. By having small groups working concurrently,
you can get individual tuition and see a range of different ideas. There
are lots of ideas which can be developed into Xmas decorations.
Please Bring!! A pair of scissors; any old business cards you may have;
