Dear Colleagues,

Our seminar programme for 2011-2012 will start in September. The
seminar slot remains the same as last year: SECOND THURSDAY OF EACH
MONTH from 6.00pm to 7.30pm.

We are pleased to announce our first three seminars as follows.


8 September: Indu Choraria, 'One Loop – Endless Possibilities'.
In mathematical terms, knitting takes a one dimensional yarn and loops
it into fabrics that sit between 2 and 3 dimensions, not necessarily as
a fractal object, but via forms such as lace, cables, baubles, layering,
pleats - and simultaneously these can be crafted into shapes of complex
geometry, from socks to Klein bottles. Indu will touch on some of these
possibilities, referencing examples including her own work and
reflecting on the more intangible aspects of knitting such as the
emotional, personal and cultural.
INDU CHORARIA studied fashion design in London and San Francisco, and
has worked in fashion houses around the world, including Mumbai, Paris
and Hong Kong. Indu launched her own luxury fashion label ‘nu’ in
February 2010, which was exhibited at Paris Fashion Week. To view the
collection visit: www.the-nu-space.com .

13 October: Rolf Gelhaar (title TBA) [www.gehlhaar.org]

10 November: Paul Ernest, 'Mathematics in the Art of John Ernest'.

And continuing on: 8 December, 12 January 2012, 9 February, 8 March, 12
April, 10 May, 14 June.

Please watch out for announcements of additional events during the year.
