Fine Arts Society
We are an autonomous body, founded in 1989, one of several hundred affiliated to the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS) which has existed for nearly 50 years through the UK and abroad and has a total affiliate membership not far short of 100,000. The societies' aims are to advance decorative and fine arts appreciation and education, alongside promoting the conservation of our artistic heritage.
Our core activity is the delivery of illustrated lectures by Nadfas accredited lecturers on a monthly basis from September to May which are held at the William Burt Centre at West Winch at 2.15pm on the 2nd Thursday of the month. These produce a wonderful and eclectic mix of what we seek to embrace.
These are supplemented by occasional Study Days or visits, on a local or area basis, where a chosen subject is explored in greater depth.
We also have 2 specialist groups, being Church Recorders which work locally recording the fabric and contents of our local churches and Heritage Volunteers whose members offer their skills to organisations in the community, including National Trust, on matters such as fabric and book preservation. In addition we have a small non-specialist Art Group, which enables members to meet and produce their own work. All of these groups are very happy to have new members.
