Henley Art and Crafts Guild

The Guild, founded in 1953, aims to bring together all those interested in visual arts and the crafts. This is achieved by arranging a number of activities for members throughout the year.

Landscape painting days are arranged in the summer months and indoor painting workshops are held during the winter, usually on a Friday, mostly at the Remenham Village Hall.

Occasionally, other locations are chosen. A tutor is in attendance both on landscape days and during the winter workshops, although this practice is varied from time to time according to popular demand. More recently, other activities have been introduced into a more varied programme (iPad sessions, Craft workshops; visits to studios, gardens etc.) Look at WorkshopDay to see some photos!

An annual exhibition of members' work is normally held in the SPRING and forms part of the Henley Art Trail (HAT); there is also a smaller, more selective, exhibition in the Autumn. Pictures and sculptures displayed at the Autumn exhibition are usually chosen by someone who is an accepted authority on fine arts and who is not a member of the Guild. A third exhibition featuring crafts is usually held in early December. All exhibitions are held in the Old Fire Station Gallery, Market Place, Henley-on-Thames.

See the exhibitions page for up to date information about other exhibitions that are on now or are coming up next year.
