As well as writing and illustrating picture books, I love to present and deliver workshops at schools and festivals.
Here is an overview of what I can provide, however please contact me to discuss what might work best for your group.
My presentations are generally about the process of making a picture book from idea generation to publication.
I bring examples of my dummy books and finished work to discuss with the audience. Presentations work well for large or small groups and can be tailored to meet different age groups.
My workshops centre around the techniques used to create my books. The group (limited to approximately 25) will often work on individual elements of a large group collage as we recreate a page of one of my books. This is an excellent format for school class groups and encourages both individual focus and team work.
I also am able to develop workshops suitable for festivals requiring a more diverse age range within each session.
Bookings for workshops and presentations can be made by contacting my speakers agency Booked Out
