For all artists & art lovers

We inform and encourage all artists & art lovers through our monthly presentations and demonstrations.

A full yearly programme of activities includes workshops, exhibitions visits and social events.

In view of the Government’s recommendations on the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic, we have cancelled all monthly meetings and the Spring Exhibition until further notice.  We will contact members when the future becomes clearer. The committee will discuss reimbursement or reduced membership fees as and when the situation returns to normality.
