October Lecture by Kate McKinnon
October 18, 2017 @ 6:45 pm - 8:45 pm
Understanding the Universe through our Beadwork
Kate will be speaking about the geometry that drives the universe and illustrating it all in beads!
Kate McKinnon, who has been beading since she was a child, has written seven books on metalsmithing, metal clay, and beadwork. Her latest series is CONTEMPORARY GEOMETRIC BEADWORK, focused on the geometry and architecture of the natural world and of mathematics.
Here are some photos of work from KATE’S team, illustrating her talk. Kate will be focusing on triangles, warped squares, and shapes we can make with them.
From left top clockwise: Claudia Furthner – Hexacycle 1 and Hexacycle 2, Joke van Biesen – Cycle, and Kim Van Antwerp – Hypar Cycle.
Visit the website for CONTEMPORARY GEOMETRIC BEADWORK, an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators. See More Beadwork
