Welcome to Liskeard Arts (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.

Liskeard Arts

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:

Lecture programmes, discovery days, tours and day visits for our members.

Voluntary work in historic buildings like Mount Edgcumbe and Port Eliot.
Recording churches and their contents such as our project at Sheviock Church.
Working towards developing the arts for the young people in the area.
Meeting others socially with similar interests.

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 discovery 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.
