Blockley Decorative and Fine Arts Society is based in Blockley in Gloucestershire but we have members from Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Worcestershire and beyond. We would like to welcome you to our web site and share with you our interest in all aspects of the decorative and fine arts. We belong to the West Mercia Area of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts (NADFAS)
Since our formation in 1985 we have provided a programme of lectures, study days, visits and tours which have covered a vast range of subjects from the detailed examination of a single work of art to the culture and art of a whole period of history. The lecturers who provide this wealth of knowledge have to undergo a very thorough vetting before they can be accredited as a NADFAS lecturer so the standards are very high. Our visits and tours aim to provide an enjoyable and sociable cultural experience, many of them have been suggested by our own members
A very important part of the activity of our Society focuses on our contribution to the conservation of our heritage, if this sounds rather grand, we would like to assure you that our groups of Heritage Volunteers and Church Recorders have great fun while contributing valuable work. In an effort to interest young people in the arts, we have various projects with local schools
Our lectures take place in St. George’s Hall Blockley at 2.45 pm on the third Monday of the month from September to June and we normally have two study days and two visits each year. Tours in the UK and overseas are very popular and provide a great way to absorb art and culture in a sociable setting
