Join Rabbits Road Press and Shubbak for a rare illustration workshop opportunity with two members of the Casablanca-based Skefkef Collective: Mehdi Annassi and Aicha El Beloui. The multidisciplinary artists will be in London for the first time to guide you through the process of large-scale illustration within neighbourhood contexts.
All levels welcome, from aspiring comics, illustrators, and street artists, to those intrigued by the form.
