About me

Hello

I’m Daisy Fox,
writer and maker

Ever since I can remember I have have been writing stories and making things.

As a child I was surrounded by creativity – I spent most of my formative years in my parents’ pottery workshop.

Nowadays I am a freelance writer and maker, enjoying life by the sea with my family.

My craft writing journey began in 2018 with my fortnightly Family Time children’s column for Reach Plc. Through it, I have met and interviewed some fascinating people. I come up with a different craft project for each column to tie in with my theme.

I love writing about nature and so I’m delighted to be working with Eco Kids Planet magazine and Wildlife Watch, the magazine for junior members of the Wildlife Trusts.

I feel privileged to create craft resources for Into Film, a charity which puts film at the heart of children and young people’s education, helping to support their academic, cultural, and social development.

Alongside my writing I love to make models. After studying stop motion animation at art college, I made props for Aardman Animation’s Rex the Runt and Hot Animation’s Pingu.
My next assignment was for Warner Bros, putting the windows into the scale model of Hogwarts for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

I wrote and illustrated picture book Get Ahead Fred and have since devised literature-based workshops for many organisations such as local authorities, bookshops and schools.

Please get in touch if you have a project you would like to discuss.
