“The children had a great time and enjoyed your workshop.  They have created some great illustrations.  Thank you for sharing your expertise and inspiring the children.”


St Mark’s CE Primary School, Stoke-on-Trent




"Kate was lovely to work with and really good with the children.  It is good for children to meet a professional illustrator who lives locally and who comes from the area - that is really helpful in terms of raising aspirations."


Stoke-on-Trent Libraries

Kate visits primary schools regularly and offers exciting drawing workshops based on her books, to inspire a love of reading.


The pupils can find out what it is like to be an author and illustrator and how Kate comes up with her ideas, as well as having lots of doodling fun!  


Kate is happy to work with all primary school age groups and to do book sales and signings on request.



“It was a fantastic school visit, which has left 280 children drawing and wanting to be illustrators!  

Thanks, Kate.  You were brilliant!”


Holme Grange School, Wokingham





“A big thank you for today! We have truly enjoyed having you at Heron Cross and it's been such a super experience for the children! They have all worked so hard on their illustrations!”


Heron Cross Primary School, Stoke-on-Trent
