Kate Holden from IndieManga has been in touch to let us know she’s running another Manga workshop in Barrow.
“Bookings won’t be open for a week or two yet, but it’s still free of charge and will be at Barrow Library (upstairs) on February 18th (during half term hols),” she says.
“I moved the age limit up, because there were a few twenty year olds wanting to come last time!”
The last workshop covered the basics of character design, scripting, panelling and pencilling your own doujinshi (that’s Japanese for a self-publication).
