Welcome to LIDFAS
Liskeard Decorative & Fine Arts Society (LIDFAS) is a Member Society of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS). NADFAS was formed to bring together people interested in the decorative and fine arts who wished to hear beautifully illustrated lectures from experts, to visit museums, galleries, historic houses and gardens and to increase and broaden their knowledge of art in the widest sense of that word. It has over 350 member societies in the UK and overseas and 90,000 individual members worldwide.
Our area mainly covers South East and East Cornwall, where we aim to promote and preserve the arts. But members from other areas are always welcome to join us.
Our interests include:
Coffee is served before lectures from 7.00pm. Occasional lunches organised at the Whitsand Bay Hotel prove very popular with our members.
We organise a programme of nine monthly lectures and two study days, on a wide range of decorative and fine arts subjects, by lecturers approved by NADFAS, who are all experts in their field. The subjects can range from paintings, sculpture, ceramics and silver to music, theatre, gardens and architecture. We also organise day visits and longer tours to places of artistic interest.
