Carol Feller
Carol Feller

As with many Irish children she learned to knit while still in primary school and spent many years knitting cardigans for her dolls and occasionally herself. There is a strong history of crafting in her family; her mother sewed much of her clothes, her grandmother was an expert knitter and her aunt ran a knitting shop in Dublin.

Carol trained initially as a textile artist and then as a structural engineer. While both of these backgrounds are very different the influences can be seen in her design work which is well-shaped, flattering to wear and enjoyable to knit. She strives to design clothing with a difference: not overly complex, but still giving a very unique end product. She likes to work with different construction methods, so long as they enhance the knitting experience and make for a more intuitively put-together knitted item.

Carol has been widely published in books and magazine and travels the world teaching in yarn shops and fibre festivals. The classes she teaches cover a wide range of subjects from cables and chart reading, through garment shaping and customisation right through to short rows and colourwork. In her classes you'll move from learning the basics to refining your knitting skills and fixing problems.
