Engraver Graham Short demonstrated his amazing work to members of Axminster Art Society.

He creates microscopic engravings on tiny gold pins or on equally small presentation objects.

He can only finish up to three letters a night, using a microscope, so each piece can take up to six months to complete.

The society’s next meeting will be the annual general meeting in the United Reformed Church Hall, on Wednesday, December 7.
