'One Loop - Endless Possibilities' - Indu Choraria
6.00pm - 7.30pm
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.
