Welcome

Welcome to the website of Ashridge Decorative and Fine Arts Society (ADFAS).

 

About us

Ashridge Decorative and Fine Arts Society is a voluntary society based near Ashridge, Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. We promote knowledge for education, appreciation and study of the decorative and fine arts through lectures, study days, visits and tours.

By joining ADFAS you will have the opportunity to:

  • attend regular lectures by experts in their subjects
  • enjoy stimulating study days, tours and visits
  • meet new friends with similar artistic interests
  • take part in a range of volunteer activities.

To get an understanding of the activities of our Society, you can see our current lecture programme here. In addition to the lectures, we organise study groups, tours and visits to private houses, museums, exhibitions and theatre visits. We sometimes arrange educational art activities for school children and voluntary preservation and recording work in relation to the decorative and fine arts.

ADFAS is affiliated to the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS).
