Hi! I'm Madeleine Shepherd. Welcome to my textile studio, Knot Unknot. As well as making textile work, I also take photographs and write stories. A new website for Knot Unknot is planned for later in the year. This will be a big project to consolidate my current and past work and will incorporate its own online shop. It may mean that things are otherwise a bit quiet for a while.

News and current projects

  • Knitting Life I'm currently part of the Connected Innovators programme run jointly by Creative Informatics at University of Edinburgh and Creative Edinburgh. This funding allows me a dedicated period of research and development into knitting designs based on Conway's Game of LIfe and has enabled me to upgrade my studio equipement and learn some new techniques.

Online shopping

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

Mailing list and social media
The best way to keep in touch is to join my mailing list. Members will be the first to know about online shopping updates and other opportunities to see and buy my work.
