This Saturday we were very pleased to be able to hold a fab workshop in collaboration with Studio Canal’s Ghibli Forever season bringing an expert Manga artist to Sheffield and teaching a group of young people (and myself) to draw. As a total drawing novice I soon realised that the rest of the group were way more up to speed on Manga than me so I worked very hard at accurately copying the examples. On the other hand, the young people really let their creativity take over and some amazing work was produced. I just couldn’t let the fantastic pieces disappear in the hands of their creators without getting some snaps for the album. I really am very impressed with their work and can’t wait to spend tomorrow in an Origami workshop, once again letting the young people lead the way and show me how it’s really done.
