WHAT ARE ‘DECORATIVE AND FINE ARTS'?
Take a look at our lecture programme. It is not just about paintings! Our interests include architecture, ceramics, furniture, garden design, glass, jewellery, mosaics and sculpture, as well as their history and the lives of artists, craftsmen and patrons. We also recognise the role of music, theatre and literature.
WHAT DO WE DO?
- Organise a programme of 11 lectures a year delivered by experts in their field.
- Provide two Special Interest Days where members have the opportunity to learn in more depth about a specific topic.
- Arrange visits to a variety of museums, galleries, houses and gardens. In addition there is an annual special interest holiday, usually alternating between the UK and abroad.
- Support Young Arts through sponsorship of local children’s projects, including the Art Room.
- Run a group of Heritage Volunteers and a Church Recorders group.
