Welcome to SFDAV
The Society of Folk & Decorative Artists of Victoria is a group of folk and decorative artists who (in normal circumstances) meet every month on the 4th Sunday excluding December and January. So far in 2020 we have only been able to have one meeting - February 23rd, and then COVID restrictions impacted.
Our Mission is to create a sharing and caring Society where decorative painters of all levels, abilities and ages come together to share a mutual love of Folk and Decorative Art.
For the months of February, April, June, August, & October each year, a guest speaker or event will follow the general meeting. For the opposite months of March, May, July, September & November, workshop/s are held by visiting or member tutors.
This beautiful geisha plate was painted by long time SFDAV member, Denise Illingworth who is keeping herself busy creating, whilst she is unable to visit her husband in care, due to Covid restrictions. Denise has been a member for many years and it was wonderful to hear from her.
If members have images they would like to share, please email them and they will be highlighted on the web page and Facebook. As we have no current workshop pieces to share, it would be great to see what members are doing, during this lockdown period.
Further COVID restrictions are in place. Lockdown has been extended and we won't be able to consider meetings or workshops for at least another six weeks beginning 2nd August 2020. We have a COVID plan in place for when we are allowed to next meet at H.V. Jones Hall.
In the meantime we will keep in touch with members via email, Folklore, website & Facebook. Please email any images or thoughts you would like to share with the members.
Stay safe and keep painting.
