Every year we hold a wide ranging and fascinating programme of lectures, visits workshops and social events. Our members, many of whom are artists and craftspeople themselves, are interested in all the decorative and fine arts including painting, music, literature, furniture, mosaics, and architecture. We try and ensure that the programme has something of interest to everyone and with such a committed and enthusiastic membership there’s always something new and exciting going on!

Here in West Cornwall, we’re a relatively new society founded in 2011 . We do have some availability now for new members, so if you would like to become a member, click here for further information.

We still remain one of over 300 member societies of the ‘The Arts Society’  formerly  NADFAS – the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies.


Our next lecture  will be on 8th November at Penwith College at 7.30pm.
