I didn't register and read the article, but from your description - crochet coral reef - there is a member here who does that type of craft. I can't remember the username.

There was an article in our newspaper recently about this too. The member that I'm thinking of made crochet animals. I don't remember if she did coral reefs too. It is fascinating! Makes me want to learn how to crochet.

Wow! I saw a crocheted brain at the science museum once and it was really neat, but this is amazing! Wonder if they've crocheted any fish?

DC Crochets a Coral Reef! December 7, 2008 at Smithsonian

For those of you in the Washington, DC metro area ....

Sunday, Dec 7: “Crochet a Coral Reef” at the Smithsonian

Join us at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History for a free illustrated lecture on coral reef conservation followed by a workshop where participants will learn to crochet a "coral reef."

Margaret Wertheim, a physicist, journalist and co-founder of the Institute For Figuring, will discuss her crochet coral reef project – an effort that draws on art, mathematics and science to bring the world's attention to the plight of coral reefs. Wertheim's reefs have been exhibited in Chicago, London and New York, among other locations. Wertheim and Nancy Knowlton, the Smithsonian’s Sant Chair for Marine Science, will give a short talk about coral reefs, ocean conservation, and the art of crocheting a representation of a coral reef. Following the talk, audience members will have the opportunity to participate in a crochet workshop where Wertheim will demonstrate the “hyperbolic” crochet techniques used to create a dazzling woolen reef. Those wishing to attend the workshop should meet in Baird Auditorium following the discussion, and will be escorted by museum staff to the workshop location.

Location: Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, Baird Auditorium
Date: Sunday, Dec. 7
Time: Lecture 1:00 - 2:15 pm; Workshop 2:30 - 5:00 pm
FREE and open to the public
Associated exhibition: The Sant Ocean Hall

For more information, please visit the Web sites – The Sant Ocean Hall - Event Information
The Institute For Figuring // Gallery

Hope you can join us, and ... also check out the new coral reef tank in the museum's Sant Ocean Hall.
