Unlock the Mystery of Art with HDFAS

WELCOME TO THE HASLEMERE BRANCH OF NADFAS

Haslemere DFAS was founded in 1971 and after 43 years the Society is still going strong, with about 260 members. In 2013 HDFAS became a charity, the 68th NADFAS society to take this step. As a charity we aim to be more involved in the local community, in particular focusing on inspiring children with a love of the arts and helping to conserve our heritage through volunteer work and church recording.
Every year we have a packed programme of events and monthly lectures. A series of study days and outings to places of historical and artistic interest is planned each year. Occasional trips abroad are also organised - this year a visit to Sicily is planned for October.

This year's lectures include a wide variety of topics ranging from tales of the mysterious land of Ethiopia and the story of the lost civilisation of Cambodia, to Nordic landscape painting, the posters of the Belle Epoque and three giants of post war British art, Francis Bacon, Ben Nicholson and Graham Sutherland.The first Study Day of the year was devoted to the book - Dominic Riley discussed form and function in creative book structures and gave a demonstration of gold leaf tooling. London will be the
destination for a couple of the outings and, to round off the year, a Christmas tea will follow the December lecture.
