April Meeting

April 3, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Anna Zaharakos, Commercial Fabric design, jacquard weaving and 3D knitting

Journey of a textile designer, the industry side of textiles and designing textiles with various mediums. I will walk you through my own inventive exploration of weaving shaped pockets and components using the Jacquard technology, along with my work in more traditional commercial textiles. Currently, I am involved in the exploration of 3D Knitting technology.

Presenter’s Bio

Anna Zaharakos entered textile design via the path of product design and the office furniture industry. As I became more intrigued with materials I was particularly drawn into the amazing and never-ending dimension of textiles and the interlacing of fibers.

I have always loved the 3 Greek Fates; Clotho, the spinner of human fate, Lachesis who dispenses it, and Atropos who cuts the thread. These 3 Fates are in essence the weaver of life.
