Welcome to Welwyn Garden Decorative & Fine Arts Society!


The National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS) is a leading arts charity which opens up the world of the arts through a network of local Societies and national events. Monthly lectures are given by some of the country's top experts in the arts, and together with days of special interest, educational visits and cultural holidays, NADFAS is a great way to learn, have fun and make new and lasting friendships.
