“Knotty Knits: a chat about math and crafts” with Sabetta Matsumoto

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

Dr. Sabetta Matsumoto from Georgia Institute of Technology will be discussing creative crafts and math research. What can physics learn from crochet? How does a simple stitch change the stretch of a scarf, and how are modern materials and manufacturing learning from their wooly ancestors? Join Dr. Matsumoto for a talk about curvature using pattern making, symmetries using quilt squares and flags, hyperbolic space using quilting at crochet, and knot theory and coding using knits.

In addition to the artist talk, Dr. Matsumoto will be hosting two workshops for Stanford affiliates on April 27 & 28. Learn more and RSVP at:
