Our friends at the Science Gallery in Dublin received a lovely email and photograph from Amanda, who'd recently seen the Crochet Coral Reef exhibition. We were thrilled to hear about her experience and to see a colorful hyperbolic mobile giving little 'Elvie' something to smile about. Here's what Amanda wrote:
My friend and i came to your exhibition and loved it. We loved all the thoughts we had about our lives, we loved seeing the blokes crocheting and taking time to consider the impact we have on the planet by how we live our daily lives and then we came to the workshop. We came with a baby who gurgled at the corals (she was 7 weeks old and hadn't spoken too much yet).. .. so we went home and made some for her to wake up to... and this is her waking up to the corals...... beautiful.
I then took the slow journey home on the ferry having been stranded in Ireland and as i sat and crocheted my way home i was distributing your cards to enquiring passengers and teaching some of them how to crochet hyperbolic spheres. Thank you for getting us hooked! We hope to have some to send you after we have satisfied the babies in our lives.
