Hi, I'm Madeleine - a textile artist/maker who also takes photographs and writes stories. Most of my work has its roots in science, maths or science fiction. The name Knot Unktnot has a specific mathematical meaning but it also reflects a lot of what happens in the studio!

Online shopping
  • Pop-up online shop on Folksy! Open again for a few weeks. New stock expected to drop on 26 June.
  • Print-on-demand t-shirts, cards and posters. Not all of my projects are knitted! Shop here for items created from my cyanotype photography and science-fiction images (including Alba ad Astra). Everything is printed to order using ecofriendly materials in Teemill's sustainable factory on the Isle of Wight, UK.

Classes and workshops
Ever fancied trying out machine knitting? Well, now you can! I am teaching beginners' workshops at The Edinburgh Remakery. The next set of dates are being planned just now. More details and other sessions on the classes and workshops page, For more advanced students, I'm also working on a Hacked Knitting Machine Experience workshop which will launch in the autumn.

These are bricks and mortar, real life places where you can buy a small selection of my work.
