About this Event

This event is now FULLY BOOKED, but you can still watch the Facebook livestream at 7pm on 22 April at http://www.facebook.com/heritagecraftsassociation/live.

Join the Heritage Crafts Association in conversation with calligrapher Sheila Waters. Sheila was dubbed the 'Queen of Calligraphy' by none other than renowned calligrapher and type designer Hermann Zapf RDI and it is a well-deserved title.

Sheila is perhaps best known for her detailed, complex and exquisitely executed 'Roundel of the Seasons' and for writing out and vividly illustrating the whole of Dylan Thomas' 'Under Milk Wood', but she has done so much more than this, taking her calligraphy to the US, helping her husband Peter when floods devastated manuscripts and early books in Florence, setting up the Washington Guild of Calligraphers, as well as being a highly-celebrated teacher.

Sheila will be Zooming in from her home in Maryland to talk about her life and work with scribe and illuminator Patricia Lovett MBE, Chair of the Heritage Crafts Association.

The session will take place on Zoom and attendees must register in advance via Eventbrite. Attendees will also have the opportunity submit questions in advance.
