Morley Literature Festival: Manga, sci-fi and anime at Morley Library


If you are aged 11 or over and interested in Manga, anime or science fiction, Morley Library will be the place to be next month.

The library, on Commercial Street, is hosting two Manga events as part of Morley Literature Festival 2014 where visitors will be able to join experienced Huddersfield-based artist and designer Tasneem Kausar for a two-and-a-half afternoon workshop.

On Saturday October 4, Tasneem will explore basic manga techniques and will offer budding young artists the opportunity to explore illustration, story boarding and cartooning.

Places for the workshop are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment. A £5 ticket includes refreshments and materials.

Tasneem will also host a manga surgery at the library on Sunday October 12. Aspiring artists will have the chance to receive her professional feedback on their work and to progress individual projects from the initial workshop.

Tickets for the surgery are free to registered workshop participants or £3 otherwise.

Tickets for Tasneem’s Manga events are now on sale at Morley Library, which can be booked by calling 0113 3781887. To find out more visit
