The presenters will offer a cross-disciplinary workshop integrating mathematics, art, design, architecture and especially fashion in the classroom, or a workspace at a university, in a very creative manner. They will incorporate basic mathematical ideas such as triangulation, hyperbolic geometry and the class of convex polyhedrons known as platonic solids. Students and teachers engaged in this project will be immersed in the creative process, and they can join in wherever they are interested. They will create, discuss and prototype their ideas, and explore mathematical tools, integrating them with art and the design process.
