Welcome to the web site of the Farnham Decorative and Fine Arts Society

FDFAS is one of the largest Decorative and Fine Arts Societies in the UK with 10 lectures a year on the third Tuesday of each month, except July and August. Meetings are held at 10.30 in the Great Hall of the Maltings which seats 400 people. Situated in the centre of Farnham, The Maltings has a car park and small cafe, an ideal place to meet up for coffee.


The Society chooses top lecturers to speak on a wide range of topics in the decorative and fine arts covering all aspects, including jewellery, paintings, sculptures, glass, gardens and houses. Click here for future lectures. A list of past lecturers and lectures is here.


We are a friendly Society and everyone has the opportunity of getting involved in the many active Groups as volunteers. These include local Heritage, Church Recording and Young Arts and is a wonderful way of getting to know other people with similar interests.


FDFAS organises interesting visits and special-interest study mornings as well as tours in the UK and abroad. Details can be found in the relevant section on the website.


A Schools Art Exhibition is held biennially to work with local schools to encourage and promote art among the young.
