The first National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts (NADFAS) was started in 1965 by our founder Patricia Fay. In 1968 the national organization was formed, becoming a charity in 1972. Some 40 years later our core aims remain the same – arts education and heritage conservation.
NADFAS now has more than 90,000 members
- Over 340 societies in the UK
- 10 in Europe and 5 in New Zealand
- The Australian Association of ADFAS has more than 30 societies
