Welcome to Teme Valley DFAS

Welcome to Teme Valley Decorative and Fine Arts Society. We were founded in 1976 so we are one of the oldest member societies of The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS). Like all NADFAS societies we aim to promote the appreciation of the decorative and fine arts and the preservation of our artistic heritage.

We hold lectures on a wide variety of subjects in the afternoon of the third Wednesday of the month from September to May, excluding December. These are given by NADFAS accredited lecturers who are all highly qualified and experts in their chosen field. A Full list is in the Lectures section. We also hold two study days a year, led by NADFAS lecturers, when topics are explored in greater depth during morning and afternoon sessions. Sometimes members are invited to bring relevant artefacts for the lecturers to examine. For proposed events see the Study Days section.

The society organises two or three visits a year to museums, historic house and exhibitions. Some are whole day, some are half-day events. For proposed outings see the 'visits' section. Teme Valley Decorative and Fine Arts Society has two thriving groups of Volunteers: Church Recording (now working on their thirteenth church) and Heritage Volunteers who are making replica gowns at the National Trusts’ Berrington Hall near Ludlow.

To find out more about NADFAS follow this link to their Website. We work with other societies in the West Mercia Region and share some events with them open to all members. Details of their activities can be found through this link.
