Art and crafts

- - - - - - - - -


Have you ever looked at an artwork and wondered about its meaning, about the artist, the context or the techniques involved? If so, then you’ll enjoy the Art History and Appreciation group. No expert artistic knowledge is assumed or necessary - just a liking and interest in art in its many and varied forms.

Presentations by group members are appreciated and enjoyed. Everyone’s opinion and contribution is valued in this friendly, informal, and enthusiastic group.

The group aims to provide opportunities to socialise, discuss and learn from each other. We warmly welcome new members.

Current Activity

We space the chairs, open the windows and invite members to wear masks if they wish to. (Most members wear them to enter and leave the room but remove them whilst sitting).

If you would like to join us for 2022, you will be made most welcome.
