Hyperbolic Crochet

Currently The Irish Reef is is on show at The Greenhouse in Dublin and we are delighted that The Reef is out of storage and on view for everyone to enjoy. This is The Insitute for Figuring’s fantastic ode to maths and the fragile coral reefs in our oceans. I facilitated and coordinated some of […]

A Dive On The Irish Crochet Corals

Last night we enjoyed the grand opening of the exhibition and everybody that is anybody was at the preview of the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef at Science Gallery Dublin apart from Stitchlily, who was very badly missed. I carried her around on my shoulder all night and I did get the warmest hug from her […]

I Didn’t Mean To But…

Little Princess Hyperbolic Coral

I became a very proud grandaunt last week to the sweetest little baby girl, she is pretty, her parents are so happy and her grand parents simply cannot get over the little miracle of life, nor can I.

Gigantic Shoulders

It is on the shoulders of giants I stand. Yesterday at The Science Gallery was such a beautiful day for me. The crocheters that showed up for the Hyperbolic workshops were all armed with keen spirit and happy hooks and I think they were all inspired by the crocheters that have gone before them. Hyperbolic […]
