During lockdown Katie Cardew Illustrations has adapted considerably, adding a hugely popular 'Draw With Katie' range. The range began with a children's colouring & activity book, Katie then added a beautifully illustrated adult's colouring book, two downloadable illustration workshops and a remote kids club, where children can learn to draw & illustrate from home. 

Katie says: "So many people have got involved with the Draw With Katie range - it's amazing to see the results, especially from the downloadable workshops - people's work has been incredible! I've really loved bringing the fun of our workshops into people's homes and this is definitely something we'll continue to do!"


The team have also been hand-writing cards for customers so that they don't have to go to the post office themselves, and this is set to continue over the coming months.


The studio has also been busy with their collaborations with Joules, Henley and Historic Royal Palaces as well as increasing stockists and creating a new website. Looking to the future, Katie will be launching new ranges for spring 2021.
