MATLOCK ARTISTS SOCIETY
The Society was formed in 1989 by three members of the Art class held at Tawney House, the former adult education centre on Matlock Green. They were aware that there was no other Art group in the Matlock area at that time and they decided to see what interest there might be in the formation of one which would be based at Tawney House.
The inaugural meeting was held on 10th March, 1989 at which sixteen prospective members were present when it was agreed that the Tawney House Artists Society should be formed.
The Society was originally based at Tawney House until 2004. When Tawney house had to close we were fortunate enough to find new premises at All Saints Church Hall in Smedley Street when it was agreed that we should change our name to the Matlock Artists Society. Since that time it has continued to prosper and our membership now has to be limited in order that our monthly workshops will not be over-subscribed.
The is a monthly Programme of demonstrations and workshops led by visiting artist and a Portrait Group and Mutual Help Groups
These are held at All Saints Church Hall, Smedley Street Matlock. Demonstrations and the Portrait and Mutual Help Groups are open to all and not restricted at Artist Society Members. Workshops are for members only.
