Arts & Design Group

Arts & Design Group

We share an interest in the visual arts and design including: painting, drawing, graphics, sculpture, architecture, ceramics, textiles, industrial design and much more.

We pursue that interest by meetings to show our own items, having speakers from inside and outside the group and by visits to exhibitions, collections or institutions etc.

A dozen members enjoyed touring the Arts area around Kings Cross in April.

Visiting New Housing Developments.

North Hertfordshire and almost anywhere in southern England will be getting new housing estates on the edge of towns and infilling on brown field sites. Getting new housing right is always a challenge. Does it look good, work well to live in, blend in with the existing area, have good transport links and is it affordable? We will be visiting sites either in East London or the Cambridge area in late November or early December. 

If you would like to help to establish the Arts and Design group please contact William.
