Knot Unkot textile studio

A few years ago I hacked a knitting machine to get away from the forced repeating patterns in domestic machines. This has enabled me to create large pieces of work such as portrait wall hangings and pieces using data inspired patterns. However, my full creative practice is very wide-ranging and includes feltmaking, stitch, photography and writing. The output can be anything from small fashion accessories to large scale sculpture and site-specific community art installations.

I’ve studied maths, science, felt-making, textile art, botanical photography, communication, printmaking at a variety of levels and they all appear in my work in different ways. If it’s not obvious in the finished work, but it'll be there in the manufacturing process. That work takes many forms: sculpture, vessels, installations, things to wear, prose fiction, photographs.

My best-selling items are wall hangings of Yuri Gagarin, hand knitted Möbius strip scarves and accessories featuring elementary cellular automata patterns.
