Welcome to Petersfield Arts & Crafts Society

PACS was founded in 1934 when Lady Margaret Nicholson became the first president.  Among the founder members was well known local artist Flora Twort along with a group of distinguished local artists and craftspeople.

Our mission continues to be the promotion of arts and crafts in the area of Petersfield through exhibitions, workshops, artist demonstrations and talks.

We have up to 300 members from Petersfield and the surrounding area and value the input of our members in all aspects of running the organisation. Members include professional artists as well as people who have discovered their creative side very recently.

Our main event is the annual exhibition held during the week of August Bank Holiday at Petersfield Festival Hall. Throughout the year we have monthly meetings and Saturday workshops. These are open to both members and non-members.
