Welcome to SFDAV
The Society of Folk & Decorative Artists of Victoria is a group of folk and decorative artists who meet every month on the 4th Sunday excluding December and January.
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.
It is with heavy hearts, that we announce that our beautiful friend and longtime SFDAV member, Judy Cairnduff passed away on 5th May. Judy loved our Society and was always one of the first to volunteer for any job. She worked at the Stitches & Craft Show, was a long time coordinator of the memory box program, Folklore Editor, workshop tutor & committee member. Condolences to the Cairnduff family and RIP Judy. You will be so sadly missed. Please select our Galleries page to see a small sample of Judy's lovely work.
As previousy advised the 2020 Royal Melbourne Show has been cancelled due to COVID-19. The Show has been going since 1855 and has previously only been called off on two occasions: in 1915 and again in WWII between 1940-1945. The RASV recognises the importance to decide on this year's show now as many sponsors, exhibitors and competitors spend months preparing for the Show.
There has been no change to COVID-19 restrictions. Therefore all our meetings & workshops are cancelled until further notice.
In the meantime, please stay safe and keep painting.
