As a student on the architectural glass course at Swansea School of Art in the late 1970s, I learned more from Mrs Marjorie Walters than from anyone. She was a superb draftsman, an amazing heraldic artist, and an excellent teacher. Even now, when making formal drawings, and particularly lettering, I never fail to hear her voice over my shoulder. She was most insistant, when drawing a rampant heraldic lion, that his ribs should show, and his "Floater" must be in full view. I will never forget her or her sense of humour and I feel genuinely privilaged to have been taught by her.
