Carol Feller

Carol Feller

Instructor Website:

Carol Feller is a knitwear designer and teacher who lives in Cork, Ireland. Carol, like many Irish children, learned to knit at a very young age. Carol spent many years knitting cardigans for her dolls and occasionally herself! There is a strong history of crafting in her family; Carol’s mother sewed much of her clothes, her grandmother was an expert knitter and her aunt ran a knitting shop in Dublin. Carol Feller 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. Carol 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.
