Kate spent her childhood in Devon before moving to London to study art history. After completing her BA she studied book-binding at London College Of Printing. In 2004 she set up Hanbury Press, a small independent press named after a studio on Hanbury Street in London's East End where the press started. The press produces limited edition books and printed papers using traditional crafts such as hand-binding methods and letterpress printing. She works in a London bindery and teaches bookbinding workshops across London.
