Olga Buraya-Kefelian currently lives in Alexandria, Virginia, USA. The daughter of a tailor, she grew up in Belarus where she learned to knit as a child. While travelling around different countries due to her partner’s military career, she decided to turn her hobby into her profession as a knitwear designer.
She draws her inspiration from the industrial and architectural fields. For this reason, the unmistakable hallmark of her designs is innovation. Her creations range from accessories to garments, where her love for textures and minimalism is balanced with technical elements to offer knitted designs with an impeccable finish.
Olga is the author of knitting pattern books and collections, she travels the world to give workshops and teaches everything she knows about knitting to people who, like her, love to knit.

Workshop by Olga Buraya-Kefelian
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.
