Group Info

We celebrate the ancient and modern forms of Celtic knotwork, keywork, and spirals. Knotwork can be applied to all visual arts including painting, drawing, digital art, carving, sculpture, jewelry, leather work, and textiles.

We welcome all artists who incorporate knotwork into their art, be they accomplished knotwork artists or newcomers hoping to learn how to create these amazing designs. Anyone can become a member and share their art through this group. Anyone, including non-members, can suggest favorite artwork that incorporates knotwork into the piece.

Together we can share, learn, inspire, and enjoy the many shapes of Celtic knotwork.

Member Information

Submitting a Deviation to the Group

To contribute art, go to the group's main page or gallery page and click the button for submitting art. It will bring up a menu box that will allow you to choose deviations from your gallery to include in the group. Please be responsible in choosing the gallery your art belongs in.

Categories are:
:bulletblue: Classic Style (true to the old forms)
:bulletblue: Contemporary Style (a new twist on an ancient art)
:bulletblue: Cross-Genre Style (knotwork is one element in the piece)
:bulletblue: Artisan Crafts
:bulletblue: Stock
:bulletblue: Club Related
:bulletblue: Tutorials

Currently, member submissions require admin approval to ensure they are genuinely knotwork, and placed in the correct category. Please be thoughtful when submitting your art.

Due to the time-intensive nature of creating knotwork designs, I do not expect a flood of deviations from this group. If message-box flooding problems do occur, submissions will change to moderation and be limited in number.

Suggesting a Fave for the Group

Anyone can suggest a fave for the group. On the group's Favorites page, at the top of the page you will see a button for "Suggest a Fave". On the drop-down menu you can choose which of the categories you want to submit to. Select the deviation you want Faved, and click OK. Member suggestions are automatically approved. Suggestions from anyone outside the group require approval from an admin.

Faves are an excellent way to advertise the group to non-members, and to build a more comprehensive collection of knotwork art on dA, so don't be shy about suggesting your favorite knotwork art.

Our affiliate Bracelets-and-Knots is having another contest which is open to members of affiliate groups like us.  The theme selected was MORE BEADS THAN YOU CAN SHAKE A STICK AT...!

They are accepting entries until December 14th.

Summary is quoted from their journal entry (section 4 of bracelets-and-knots.deviantart… ):

:bulletpurple:  The object submitted can be anything at all...  so you can all pick whatever you are best at.. remember FB's can be as riddled with beads as any other item of knotwork... if you don't believe this, keep an eye out for my future tutorials on the subject...  I think it's good, wherever possible to have contests that are as open as is possible as far as what type of ojects are acceptable in a given contest...
:bulletpurple:  Originality... a given in this group....
:bulletpurple:  Creativity, unusual techniques etc......
:bulletpurple:  Good easily discerible design with character....
:bulletpurple:  Naturally enough!... ;)... an extremely  liberal use of beads... and we all know the immense variety available out there... by the way: it is not about the value or "quality" of beads used... it's about the way the beads  contribute to the beauty and harmony of the overall design...

Go to the Bracelets-and-Knots journal, section 4, for full details on the contest.

I submitted several knotworks and they all remain in "waiting approval" state.
I hope you don't have any problem.
