Kath Danswan was taught embroidery from an early age by her mother and grandmother and developed her love of nature, from which she gains much of the inspiration for her work, from her father.
Having completed her City and Guilds Parts 1 & 2 in Embroidery, Kath went on to gain a Distinction for her HNC in Stitched Textiles.
Kath specialises in handmade embroidered felt wall hangings, bags and the exquisite embroidered silk bowls for which she has become renowned. Her work is in private collections world wide.
Kath teaches machine embroidery and felt making and gives talks and workshops. She also exhibits in both the UK and the USA and accepts private and public commissions.
Kath is an enthusiastic member  of the Embroiderers Guild and co founder of The Swindon based Great western Embroiderers.
When she is not stitching, Kath sings with various choral societies and performance groups, where her needle skills are often called into play for making unusual props. A crab complete with removable shell and detachable claws was a recent highlight of Ruddigore and exemplifies Kath's sense of visual theatre and the hint of creative mischief apparent in some of the colourful creatures which feature in her first book; 'Beautiful Bowls and Colourful Creatures', published internationally by The Linen Press in November 2006.
