Making Lines

These experimental, practical events, scheduled over two weeks, are all about making and thinking about the material and mathematical qualities of lines.

Week 1 (Wednesday 23 June): Focuses on twists and twines, exploring the many ways to make rope, moving from the inside and outside of twists to twined tubes, surfaces and arcs.

Week 2 (Wednesday 30 June): We move into braids and chains, travelling around curves in the Möbius Strip and Klein Bottle, with lots of time for experimenting.

In between, we will take lines for walks, consider Buckminster Fuller's view on crossed lines, and see what Tim Ingold has to say about lines of life....
