Workshops tend to work best in class-sized groups, talks/demonstrations can be to larger numbers. Find out more at: www.deesulman.com

I had very positive feedback from all the classes and the children really enjoyed your sessions…The teachers are now all planning to do follow up work on story writing after your session, each class are going to make their own class book of short stories…" K.M Perivale Primary School, Ealing

"All the teachers have said how well their children thought the visit went and what lovely discussions they have had with their forms subsequently. Think a lot of diaries may well be written as holiday work in the near future…!" R.K Dragon School, Oxford
