Sachiko Burgin

Region: ON
Sansei Yonsei | Born 1986, Toronto


Sachiko is a Canadian hand-knitting pattern designer. She attended OCADU and studied metal-smithing and jewelry design, and despite it being a tangibly different material then wool, she uses the knowledge she obtained to work out how forms work and function on the body. Working with shape and texture, she enjoys experimenting with different forms of construction. When she finds the time Sachiko also enjoys machine knitting, jewelry making, and natural dyeing. Her work has been published in books and magazines such as Pom Pom Quarterly, Amirisu, Laine, Knitscene, Knit.Purl, among others. You can see her jewelry work here.
