Dartmoor DFAS Inaugural Meeting

Full House at First Meeting
Wednesday 8th February 2012

In a packed Okehampton Charter Hall some 170 members and guests of our newly formed Dartmoor Decorative and Fine Arts Society heard Mrs Gri Harrison, Chairman of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies, welcome the Society to membership of NADFAS as its 365th member.

The Branch Chairman, Mrs Muff Dudgeon, introduced the speaker, the author and broadcaster, Rupert Willoughby who gave a witty and information packed talk on the events leading up to the creation of the Bayeux tapestry and how, although commissioned by William the Conqueror's half brother to tell the story of the Norman conquest of England from a French point of view, the English embroiderers who made it managed to ensure that proper respect was shown for the slain Harold and his vanquished English army.

At the next meeting, on Wednesday March 14th, Dr Geri Parlby will talking about the hidden meanings contained within The Art of the Da Vinci Code. On Wednesday April 11th, Mrs Ann Sweeney will be delving behind the scenes of Samuel Pepys' London.
