Live Drawing and Creative Writing projection test

Last night we conducted a successful test for our Live drawing and creative writing projection that will take place outside the Roman Baths on Stall Street. Illustrators Tim Vyner and Simon Spilsbury met up with novelist and poet Lucy English and Bath Spa University students, to plan a mix of live illustration and poetry.

Every night will be different and full of surprises as artists and writers interact with each other to create and compose new work live before your eyes. On Wednesday 25 Jan Simon Spilsbury will illustrate poems to the theme of Illumination as they are performed. Thursday 26 Jan will see students decorating the façade with detailed and interesting images. On Friday 27 Jan Tim Vyner will be painting the wall with a careful interpretation of a poem. ‘In the Spotlight’ on Saturday 28 Jan will feature Lucy English engaging audiences in a live composition of a poem, as Simon Spilsbury creates his own interpretations of the text on the wall.  Here are a couple of photos from last night’s test to give you a little taster.
