History of the Cranleigh Art and Crafts Society

Cranleigh village is situated in the beautiful Surrey countryside halfway between Heathrow & Gatwick.

Fifty years ago when the population was 3000 a small group of individuals decided to form a local art group and membership rapidly climbed to 400.

Cranleigh was then regarded as the largest village in England! Today the population of Cranleigh is 20,000 and so our Society continues to serve the local interest in Art and Crafts.

Activities organised by the Society

The Society organises two Exhibitions in the Village Hall each year of local art & crafts and exhibit over 300 items by our Members.

There are monthly demonstrations on a Saturday afternoon in which we invite a professional painter to demonstrate their skills with oils, watercolours, acrylics, pastels and mixed media. These are well attended by our members and also provide an opportunity for members to meet and socialise and pick up hints and tips to improve their own art work.

Please have a look at our programme above for further details.

We also organise sketching days and plein air painting days in summer and a summer outing.
