Filipa Carneiro lives in Lisbon and is a teacher and designer of stocking stitch and crochet. As a child, she started crocheting, then moved on to embroidery and some sewing. Finally, she fell in love with knitting with two needles.
According to her own words, the main reason why she is so passionate about knitting is because it allows her to combine her creative and mathematical side in one task. She is inspired by vintage and is passionate about knitting in warm colours. Filipa loves teaching, she always tries to give her students the confidence to progress their techniques and turn their ideas into garments. For her, a knitted garment is a process, starting with the choice of pattern and yarn, through the memories of hours of knitting that become entangled in the stitches, and finally it is time to wear and show off the garment.

How do the online workshops and lectures work?
Barcelona Knits 2021 has a programme of workshops and online talks on stocking stitch and crochet given by renowned national and international designers and influencers in the world of wool.
From the end of September, you will be able to consult the online workshop programme and the panel of workshop leaders and book your place.
We will use Zoom as a platform for the virtual classes. You will only need a computer or a mobile device with a camera and microphone. We recommend that you check the quality of your connection, the timetable, the language of the workshop, the level and the previous knowledge you need.
Once the workshop has started, you will no longer be able to access it. For this reason, it is best to connect 10 minutes before and make sure that the link is working properly.
