Katerina Knight is an award winning English Textile Artist and Journalist.
Creating one-of-a-kind textile artefacts, in Katerina’s personal practice she works with homegrown and locally foraged organic materials. In combination with slow, intricate hand processes of stitch, needle lace and natural dye. Connecting ecology with craft, Katerina invites dialogues of healing and spirituality to be shared through slow textile making.

Awarded the Burberry Design Scholarship in 2021, Katerina returned to her studies, completing her Masters in Textiles at the Royal College of Art London. Katerina’s practice has been kindly supported by The Textile Society, The Clothworkers Company and Batsford Books.
Working at the forefront of regenerative textile futures, Katerina presented work at Dutch Design Week 2023 with the New Order Of Fashion studio. Her pivotal work ‘The Healing Lace’ was shortlisted for The Dorothy Waxman Prize 2023.
