Step into the world of Studio Ghibli with our sketch and sip experience. Join us for a fun evening where you’ll learn to draw iconic characters from Ghibli movies like “My Neighbor Totoro” and “Spirited Away” with a talented manga artist. No matter your skill level, you’ll enjoy sipping on your favourite drink while unleashing your creativity on canvas. Come for the art, stay for the good vibes! Here, the journey of drawing matters more than the final piece. It’s about the experience of creating art uninhibitedly.
