Stitches and Paintings
The Romanian designer Alina Popovici is teaching at the Festival in Zwolle!
Alina is a designer of knitwear and founded her own company ‘La Maille aux Tableaux‘ in 2017.
Alina: ‘After a career of twenty years in the development of people, I decided to make a new start and lead a creative, simple, slow life. I create one of a kind hand-knitted pieces inspired by art. I see my work as a sensible, meditative approach to the everyday world and its hidden beauty. ‘
When Alina is not teaching you can find her at the booth of Yarnz (..).
Alina makes one of a kind hand knitted pieces inspired by paintings and designs patterns that focus on colors and textures. Her favorite techniques are color block intarsia and stripes, sometimes with beads and different fiber combinations for a graphic, asymmetrical, abstract look.
