Teaching A04: Irish Knitting
Growing up with the tradition of aran knitting at home in Donegal, Edel MacBride starting knitting aran for her younger siblings and progressed to study fashion at Limerick School of Art in the 1980's.
An aran knit coat brought her international attention and numerous awards followed for her skills with the pins and design originality. Edel was recently the mentor for knitting and crochet on RTE's Craft Master television series. Her label "Edel MacBride" is made in Ireland and sold internationally. Edel's business "Knitfield" runs workshops and sells original content patterns and kits for knit and crochet. A passion to inspire others to take up yarn craft and a dedication to design and quality of workmanship is at the heart of "Knitfield."
