Former school teacher Kath Orsman has been a keen knitter for many years and she began to experiment with other materials. Wire was an instant success and she went on to develop a range of work. Having sold her work with great success at craft fairs, Kath has now turned her hand to writing in her first book for GMC Publications. She lives in High Wycombe, Bucks.
