The Society holds an AGM followed by lunch and a talk by a visiting guest speaker.  This is a great opportunity to mix with many other members in a relaxed social atmosphere.

The 2024 AGM will be held at Gupshill Manor in Tewkesbury on Wednesday, 20th March.  Our guest speaker is Marc Jackman who will also demonstrate his hand made watercolours.  Members will have the opportunity to get hands on and try the watercolours out for themselves, Marc will also be bringing along his shop.

Throughout the year, the Society holds a number of workshops run by prestigeous tutors who have included Billy Showell, Julia Trickey, Roger Reynolds, Ann Swan and Simon Williams.  

Visits are also arranged to gardens as well as "behind the scenes" tours of museums and collections including Birmingham Botanic Gardens, Picton Gardens near Malvern, Batsford Arboretum and Frampton Court.
