Early in July, I attended an alcohol inks demo class at Opus. The session was presented by Jenna Jones of BlueTarpStudios. I loved how the inks moved and flowed on the paper! Of course, I had to buy all the supplies so Momma Deb and I could play!
Momma Deb and I had so much fun playing with the inks! It's mesmerizing and addicting!
One of my favourite things to do with Momma Deb is to have tea and tangle, so in honour of Momma Deb's retirement from nursing, I tangled her a piece featuring 35 tea cups- one tea cup for every year she worked! I think it turned out pretty well!
Our 5-year-old niece recently visited from Burns Lake, and we took her to Science World in Vancouver, BC. The featured exhibition was called A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature. It was an interactive exhibit that explained the mathematical patterns found in the natural world. Being a Tangler, I absolutely loved this exhibit!
The centerpiece of the exhibition was an 1800 square foot elaborate mirror maze.
We learned a lot about Fractural Branching, Spirals, Golden Ratio, and Voronoi Patterns.
There was also some very cool artwork featured by different mathematicians/artist
If you get a chance, I highly recommend you check it out. The exhibition is on until September 3, and BC Teachers get free admission to Science World.
