Stafford Decorative and Fine Arts Society
Stafford DFAS, founded in 2002, currently has 270 members who are passionate about art and design! From April 2016, by moving to the Gatehouse in Stafford, a greatly increased membership will be possible. An annual programme of ten excellent lectures is complemented by several study days, visits and heritage volunteering projects across Staffordshire. These, together with Church Recording, Church trails and Young Arts resulted in the society being awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service in 2014. Stafford DFAS was the first of some 370 NADFAS affiliated societies, with between them over 90,000 members to be honoured with the QAVS!
