Visit by Kate Leiper

Newmill Primary arranged for Kate Leiper to visit their school and Botriphnie was invited to join them.

Kate is an illustrator and has recently worked with Theresa Breslin on An Illustrated Treasury of Scottish Folk and Fairy Tales and An Illustrated Treasury of Scottish Mythical Creatures. The illustrations are amazing!

Kate talked us through where her inspiration comes from and the work that goes on behind the scenes to ensure her ideas and illustrations come to life in a book.

Everyone present then had to think about ideas for their own dragon and put pencil to paper to create it.

Afterwards, the pupils enjoyed their playtime with Newmill pupils and had a great time.
