Event description

Description

Discover the maths behind craft and the craft behind maths at the Maths Craft Festival, Saturday and Sunday September 9-10 in the Events Centre at The Auckland Museum.

The Maths Craft Festival will be returning to the Auckland Museum in September. This time located in the amazing Event Centre; a circular, fully glazed room on the roof of the museum with 360 degree views of the city and harbour, and lots of natural light, perfect for crafting!

Featuring a collection of craft creation stations as well as public talks by mathematicians and crafters, the weekend-long celebration of maths promises to engage people of all ages. Knit a mathematical knot, crochet a Möbius strip, fold an origami octahedron, draw an impossible triangle, colour a Latin square, or listen to guest speakers talk about the fascinating relationships between maths and craft in the Museum’s Auditorium.

Enthusiastic volunteers, experienced in both mathematics and crafts, will make you feel at home no matter what your age or background. And there will be lots of space and seating, so you can stay and craft all day!

Open to everyone: experts and amateurs, maths-fans and maths-phobes, the crafty and the curious.

No booking is required. Entry to the festival is free with a museum ticket (which is free for NZ residents).
