2021 Programme


Due to unforeseen circumstances there will be a change of demonstrator for the Zoom meeting on Saturday, 4th September. Our demonstrator will now be Richard Crabtree, who will be working in pastels on a wildlife/animal subject.


Until we’re able to resume monthly meetings at The Vyne in Knaphill, our live demonstrations will be online, usually via Zoom. In addition, Woking is collaborating with Guildford Art Society so that members of both Societies can view two demonstrations without charge most months. All demonstrations start promptly at 2.30 pm.

Non-members are welcome to watch too for a fee £5. Please book at least 48 hours before the event via the Contact Us page of this website and make an online payment to NatWest bank, using your full name as the reference. You will receive joining instructions 24 hours prior to the demonstration, once your payment has been received.
