The Auckland Maths Craft Festival is back this weekend!

Discover the maths behind craft and the craft behind maths at the Auckland Maths Craft Festival, this weekend in the Events Centre at The Auckland Museum!

The Maths Craft Festival will be returning to the Auckland Museum in September, and this time it’s 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 an array of craft creation stations and fascinating public talks, 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.

The event is 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) and there’s also a free bus service running from South Auckland – see the website for more details.

Date: Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September 2017
Time: 10am–5pm
Place: Events Centre at The Auckland Museum
Cost: Free entry
