Ribble & Craven Decorative and Fine Art Society
Ribble & Craven Decorative and Fine Art Society (RCDFAS) is a Local Society within The National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS); a national organisation that supports a vibrant network of local Decorative Arts Societies. NADFAS is a leading arts charity which opens up the world of the arts throughout the country via monthly lectures and national events. Local Societies bring together groups of like-minded individuals through regular meetings, study days, visits, tours and volunteering activities.
Ribble & Craven Decorative and Fine Arts Society (RCDFAS) meet monthly for our excellent lectures in the village hall of Bolton-By-Bowland, Lancashire. It is our aim to deliver educational, artistic and heritage activities, reaching deep into surrounding communities. Alongside our events programme, RCDFAS has a volunteering programme which enables members to get involved with Church Recording, Church Trails, Heritage Volunteering and Young Arts.
We sincerely hope that our website will inspire you to join us and/or build your appreciation of local and national fine art institutions and initiatives. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
