Kate Pankhurst

After many years as an Art Director working in publishing, Kate wanted to pursue an art form full of integrity and creativity. The discovery of the Royal School of Needlework and hand embroidery delivered on that desire. Kate graduated from the RSN Future Tutors Programme in 2021, gaining a Distinction.  Her embroidery talent on the course was recognised and supported by The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust.

Throughout the Future Tutors Programme, Kate assisted and taught classes for the RSN online and onsite, at the London Knitting & Stitching Show and on the Certificate & Diploma Summer Intensives.

Kate is delighted to have been recognised for multiple embroidery awards in the last few years, including winning the RSN Innovative Teaching Award in 2021 and the RSN Wendy Hogg Prize for Mounting 2019.  Kate was also a finalist in the Hand & Lock Prize for Embroidery 2021 and Sew & So Needlecrafter of the Year in 2018.
