Vicky Woodgate




I have had the pleasure of entertaining children and adults alike with creative workshops held at the Tate Modern, Wildlife Trusts and schools across the country. We currently explore drawing animals, colouring eggs, filling in maps, drawing your favourite bird, colouring in and making fox and sloth face masks to take home. Contact me for more information


My current workshops also include talks about my books and wildlife found in cities around the world, projected illustrations, maps, film clips and quizzes. All things feathery, looking at eggs, testing your bird knowledge with guess the bird followed by the Blue Footed Boobie dance and exploring urban wildlife from around the world.



If you would like to find out more about booking me for your school or event pleased drop me an email and I can send you a more detailed summary to suit your needs. Children’s workshop and visits suitable for 4/5 to 11 years. I am also available for talks about my work, illustration and writing for non fiction.


A brilliant start to a week celebrating our school library! Vicky led very engaging, inspiring and humorous assemblies for our pupils from Nursery to Year 2 and encouraged a real love of all things nature. Feedback from parents and staff was nothing but positive and her beautifully illustrated information books are still flying off the library shelves. Thank you for helping to make our library anniversary such a huge success

Book signings

I am happy to sign books at events, festivals and bookshops. Or drop me an email and I can send you a signed sticker if you have already bought any of my books.


Vicky was absolutely delightful! She worked brilliantly with classes ranging from age 5-11, and had them all in thrall of her stories and knowledge of birds and other wildlife. The blue-footed booby is still a topic of conversation even now, 4 months on.

Vicky was wonderful in all she did for us on our memorable world book day 2018. Our children loved her books and still refer to them a year on!
