Colin Higginson, I would not fail in pleasing you

This new work, derived from an interest in images and characters from film, uses repetition and stillness to draw out layers of meaning. The performances evolve over the course of the weekend as each hour-long iteration builds on the last.

Activity: Bristol Drawing Club

Join Bristol Drawing Club for an afternoon of fun, interactive workshop and exercises, including ‘speed drawing’, as well as collaborative and projected wall drawings.

This hands-on workshop is suitable for all ages and abilities, and you can join in at any time.

Bristol Drawing Club is a social platform for drawing enthusiasts, founded by Bristol artists with a passion for promoting drawing for everyone. Founded in 2009, BDC is run by a team of devoted volunteers and holds regular meets and events in venues across the city, allowing artists and non-artists to mingle through a shared passion of drawing.
