Haslemere DFAS was founded in 1971. As a charity we aim to be closely 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, including a series of special interest days and outings to places of historical and artistic interest. Occasional trips abroad are also organised.

The 2017 programme of lectures includes a wide variety of topics, from medieval wall paintings to the ways in which artists have transformed the winter landscape. We will visit Basingstoke and Tibet, review Germany’s post–WWII culture of memorials and take a look at the sumptuous collections of Napoleon and Josephine. Lectures devoted to three very different artists (Sandro Botticelli, Laura Knight and Ben Nicholson) and a talk about Lawence of Arabia complete the list.
The range of interest will be extended by three study days on the art of propaganda during the Tudor period, on Islamic art and on Jim Thompson’s extraordinary influence on the production of Thai silk.
The Outings Secretary has found less well known venues for some of the outings, the final one this year being a behind–the–scenes tour at Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Club. To find out more, visit the PROGRAMME PAGES.
