Botanica Mathematica workshop

From the Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee :

Workshop – Sunday 18 June - 2pm to 4.30pm

Come and make your own Binary Bonsai with Botanica Mathematica artist Madeleine Shepherd. Take it home or contribute it to the growing woolly herbarium that is on display in the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum.  

Madeleine will give a short introduction to the project and the ideas behind its creation and then we'll have fun with fibre generating trees and flowers by applying some simple rules.  

Yarn and some tools will be provided by Dundee’s own independent yarn store, Fluph. Please bring your own set of double-pointed needles so if you don't finish your Binary Bonsai at the workshop you'll be able to take it home.

Attendance at the workshop is free but places must be booked in advance here.
