MENU Edinburgh Decorative & Fine Arts Society

The capacity of the lecture theatre sets the limit on our membership.  We admit new members annually in July/August and may have a waiting list. Those transferring from active membership in an affiliated Society will normally receive preference in moving from the waiting list.

While on the waiting list for EDFAS membership, you may still attend up to two lectures a year as a guest of a member.  You may also engage in our Church Recording and Heritage Volunteering activities. There is further information on the Volunteering pages. To engage in these activities before becoming a member of EDFAS, a volunteer must join The Arts Society as an Affiliate Member, which provides the necessary insurance cover for Heritage Volunteers and Church Recorders. For information, please go to the Affiliate Membership page of the The Arts Society website.

To apply for membership of EDFAS, please complete this membership application form. Please post the completed form to the appropriate Membership Secretary, depending on whether you wish to apply for membership of the Afternoon or the Evening session.

Current subscription rates are £47.00 for single membership, and £89.00 for joint membership.
