Welcome to Colchester Decorative

& Fine Arts Society's website

Our objective is to enhance our membership's appreciation of our artistic and cultural heritage, both national and international, in the lively company of others with similar interests. We hold ten monthly lectures, from October through to July. These are on a diverse range of arts related topics through which we aim to expand our knowledge of areas not always encountered. In addition there are extended Study Days, where there will be four to six lectures covering a given subject in much greater depth.

For more details about what we have to offer, please browse the pages of this website.
