In London I had the opportunity to see the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef Exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, and it was just great! There’s a very good picture gallery of the whole exhibition on the IFF’s website, but of course nothing beats to see the whole thing in 3D! I saw the exhibition on Saturday afternoon, and found out there would be a workshop at the beach just in front of the Royal Festival Hall the following Monday. Since it was way too hot for sightseeing, I decided to go have a look, and found a lot of people sitting in deckchairs in the shade under Festival Pier around a box full of yarn and crochet hooks and having a good time doing hyperbolic crochet. Of course my fingers started to itch, and I was invited to join in. Here’s what came out of an afternoon of crochet:
Those workshops are organized to make contributions to the UK Reef. This little piece will hopefully become part of it, and I’m proud to have made a small contribution to what I think is a great project! Here are a few pictures of the UK reef in progress at the day of the workshop:
The exhibition is still running till the 17th of August, so if you have an opportunity to visit, it’s really great!
