Dates for your Diary
Meetings
Tue Oct 16th Have you seen the wonderful tapestries by John Piper which hang in Hereford Cathedral? What do you know about them, and the other works of this famous artist? Guided by Canon Sandy Elliott, we will explore the life and works of this prolific artist, John Piper. A 20th century English painter, printmaker and designer of stained-glass windows and both opera and theatre sets, his work often focused on the British landscape, especially churches and monuments, and included tapestry designs, book jackets, screen-prints, photography, fabrics and ceramics

After lunch, our afternoon session will begin at 1.15pm when we will continue the artistic theme and show the rare DVD "The Illuminator" (2005), the story of the creation of the St John's Bible for Minnesota University. This was the first handwritten and illuminated Bible commissioned since the invention of the printing press, and Royal Calligrapher Donald Jackson and Hereford Calligraphers were part of the team who were involved in this huge undertaking, with beautiful results!
