Calling all demon hunters!

Join Manga artist Inko Ai Takita for an introduction to the strange and mythical world of Japanese folklore monsters and spirits known as Yokai.

Explore and draw supernatural Yokai characters in this workshop.  Inko will give step-by-step instructions on drawing some traditional favourites such as ‘Amabie’ and the prophet yokai ‘Kudan’.  You can also create your own manga-style Yokai!

Basic materials will be provided, although you are welcome to bring your own pencils, pens or sketchbooks.

She has published several manga books including ‘Manga Yokai Stories: Ghostly Tales from Japan’ (Tuttle), ‘Tale of Genji manga edition’ (Tuttle), and the comic ‘Portrait of Violence’, which won a bronze medal at the Independent Publisher Book Awards in 2018.
