Workshops & talks

I have been involved with giving talks and discussing comic artwork and sequential narrative for a few years.

Events I have been involved with;

Over the past few years, I have given presentations, by myself or with colleagues, to groups of people who are also interested in drawing in a manga-influenced style. I have also been involved in drawing client’s caricatures for event attendees.

  • BBC Blast Workshop tour @ “Manga motion”, Cambridge
  • Talks with Sonia Leong & Emma Vieceli @ Halesowen Library, West Midlands
  • Workshop (all-day event) @ The Hub National Centre for Craft & Design, Lincoln
  • Illustration Workshop @ “Everybody’s Reading”, Phoenix Square, Leicester
  • Talks & workshops @ The Artists & Illustrators (A&I) Exhibition, London
  • Portfolio reviews & talks @ Minamicon, Southampton
  • Caricatures @ Will Adams Festival, Kent
  • Caricatures @ TokyoToys Store, Trocadero Centre, London
  • MCM Expo, 2005-2009 (Helped host the Letraset-sponsored Manga Competition with Sweatdrop Studios)

I have TEFL experience and have had workshop, demo and talk experience with small and large groups consisting of people of all ages. This pretty much covers all bases! I’m super-passionate about comics, manga, sequential narrative, games – all aspects of popular culture – I do not consider a range of ages or small/large sized groups to be challenging, either!

If you are considering a workshop or talk for a group of people it can be arranged no problem. Or if you want to hear about manga at your art centre or library, get them in touch with me! Drop me a line with a brief outline of what you are interested in, I can tailor-make a presentation to fit your group’s preferences.




If you are interested in a talk, manga workshop or demonstration of your art product, please email me [laura.watton[@]] and describe what you would like, plus details of your budget to arrange contractual work.
