Vanessa Pellisa

Vanessa talks in her elbows. She knits compulsively. She translates, explains, helps, ironises and goes out of her way for everything.

She has worked for more than 20 years in the music industry, combining her work as a cultural journalist with her responsibilities in different independent record labels in Spain, Sweden and the United States.

She studied pattern making and garment construction at night and out of habit. One day she realised that her love for needles could be of help, so she started to help her friends, revising their patterns and translating them into Spanish. Since then she has collaborated in the translation, editing and technical revision of more than 100 designs.

For the last two years she has been fully focused on her work as an independent designer, publishing her own patterns inspired by literature, memories and the wonderful materials they are made of.

She loves all weaving techniques, but especially ganseys, fair isle and unusual constructions.

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.
