The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS) works to advance decorative and fine arts education and appreciation, alongside promoting the preservation of artistic heritage. We are a UK based charity and support a network of over 360 local Societies across the country. In addition, we support a number of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies in mainland Europe, and Australasia.


NADFAS Societies bring together groups of like minded individuals through regular meetings, study days, visits, tours and a number of volunteering activities including Church Recording, Church TrailsHeritage Volunteering and our Young Arts programmes.


NADFAS also supports the decorative and fine arts through our grant giving programme
