Our History

Fair Oak Art and Craft Society was formed in 1979.

We were lucky enough to have David Shepherd, an acclaimed wild life artist open our 5th Annual Exhibition. Our admission price then was only 5p! _20191110_180053
For many years, the society produced a monthly magazine for members called FAB. The front cover was usually adorned with a painting or sketch by one of the members. _2019 
Late in 2019, the world was hit by a coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) which, by early 2020, forced the government to introduce lockdowns. As a result, Fair Oak Art and Craft Society was unable to open for much of the year. Again, in 2021, lockdowns prevented us opening as normal and our usual annual programme of demonstrations was curtailed. We, finally, managed to re-open in a limited way on 4 August 2021. No one knows what the future holds so we have our fingers crossed that we can remain open throughout the autumn and winter!
