Do you want to know more about all things manga, but you’ve always been afraid to ask?

A practical beginners workshop will guide you through a step-by-step introduction to the Japanese art form, including drawing expressions, facial features, hair, shading, iconology, anatomy, posing, clothing and overall character design.

West Yorkshire artist, Tasneem Kausar, has been greatly influenced by Japanese anime and manga from her early childhood, and will lead a two-hour beginners’ manga drawing class at this year’s festival. Tasneem enjoys promoting the whimsical art style through her own work, as well as interactive workshops, so she’s the perfect host for this class.
