Pre-Covid, the Society held monthly meetings on the first Saturday of every month at The Vyne in Knaphill, where there are excellent facilities including free parking in the public car park opposite. An admission fee – £2.00 for members and £5.00 for guests – is payable on the door and both new members and visitors are always welcome. Until further notice these meetings will be replaced by online demonstrations enabled by Zoom and, while a charge will be made for guests, these are free to view for members. Usually held at Brookwood Memorial Hall, our 2021 workshops too will be online until social distancing rules can be relaxed. Fees are payable for these full day events and, again, non-members are welcome to participate.
In a normal year, the Society’s main exhibition is held at The Lightbox in Woking, with prizes awarded for the best work as judged by a panel of independent professionals and visitors to the show. In addition, members can exhibit and sell their work in Woking town centre, when we hold ‘outdoor’ exhibitions in Mercia Walk on four Saturdays each year, usually in June and in September.
While we’re optimistic that we’ll be at the Lightbox with an exhibition open to the public from 28 September - 10 October 2021, there are currently no firm plans for other events, although we hope to be able to stage a pop-up exhibition at some point in the year.
