Come and be immersed in the world of Grimm Sisters. On our opening night, marvel and interact with:

-Fairytale Life drawing with the Fabulous Faun – materials provided
-Tall Tales from Audrey Heartbyrne’s A-Z of men

During the week, hone your life drawing skills further with a 1-hour class with Grimm Sister Penny Tristram , and learn storytelling the DARK way, with Grimm Sister Clare Lowe. Entry is free but donations for performers and classes are welcome.

The Grimm Sisters’ Book of Household Tales is an art exhibition and happening by Hamilton House artists Clare Lowe and Penny Tristram. This exhibition, which crosses the boundaries between painting and the graphic novel, turns the comic book narrative into a 3D, interactive experience.

Clare’s work is the story of Red Ridinghood’s Womb. This autobiographical story is based in reality and twisted into an unrecognisable tale. Locked inside a womb, the narrator takes you through a sad tale of denial and violence. Half the proceeds of any book or print sold by Clare will be going to Kinergy, a counselling service for survivors of sexual abuse and rape in Bristol.

Penny’s work has bright, fun elements which will act as a foil to the dark themes in Clare’s work. Russian dolls, and brides in various forms invite you to get lost in a world of nostalgia and fantasy.

During the week, enjoy a lesson in storytelling:

Storytelling workshop 22nd October 6-7pm

The exhibition is open to the public until 24th October, from 10am-8.30pm each weekday and 10am-4.30pm at weekends.

Will you face the GRIMM reality, or give in to sugar-sweet denial?
