The talk at the Swan and Pen Literary Society on Monday, January 13, is Charles Burns, on Mastering Silhouettes.

In his long career as a silhouette artist, Mr Burns has cut many notable portraits, including two of the Queen.

With a first class honours degree in fine art, he worked for many years as a street artist cutting silhouettes in London’s Covent Garden, then moved on to the corporate entertainment market.

The talk is at 7.30pm in the Sunley Lecture Theatre, Chandos Road Building.
