Ricardo Nemirovsky and Tam Dibley have been working together since August 2017, along with other collaborators, aiming to find new possibilities for informal maths education. Through a number of ongoing craft projects we have gained insight into how mathematical thought comes to us in many different forms, and can be developed intuitively through our physical interactions with geometry, materials, patterns and shapes.
Current projects include tensegrities, exploring the mathematics of force within structures which use tension to hold together, and fabric bowls and curve cubes, both of which look at the transformations between 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional curves.
We are always looking to collaborate on new projects and to share what we've learned, so please contact us if you are interested or have any questions!
We will also be putting some resources on the site to download, which can be laser-cut or 3D printed to use in your own ways - we only ask that you send us some pictures!
