Hands of a Genius

U3A in Ludlow

Monday 25 February at 10:00am

Ludlow Assembly Rooms

Speaker: Graham Short

Graham Short, who lives in Birmingham, left school with no qualifications and began an apprenticeship in engraving. He later discovered he had a special talent for this and he is now a world famous micro-artist. His work, which is invisible to the naked eye, is much in demand and sells in galleries around the world. He is the man who engraved the Lord's Prayer on the head of a pin, the portrait of writer Jane Austen on the transparent section of four polymer banknotes and ‘Nothing is Impossible’ along the sharp edge of a Wilkinson razor blade.

His presentation will be both instructive and entertaining. He comes with very positive recommendations from audiences he has addressed in the past.

Non-members are always welcome to come to a U3A meeting as a visitor to find out more about U3A in Ludlow.
