Creative Exchange

creative exchangeCreative Exchange is a collective of designers, craftspeople and artists centered on Southgate, Palmers Green and Winchmore Hill but welcoming members from elsewhere in Enfield, Barnet and surrounding areas.  

The network has been formed as a mutually supportive group to overcome the isolation often felt by sole practitioners. Recognising the benefit of meeting and sharing experiences and ideas, it will be organising meetings with special interest talks and social gatherings, as well as offering exhibiting and selling opportunities.

Creative Exchange actively promotes excellence in art, craft and design through its two annual events: the Open Studios and Art Trail in June and the Designer Craft and Art Fair in November.

Palmers Green Art Group

palmers green art group logoPalmers Green Art Group started 12 years ago to help a group of amateur artists nurture and develop their artistic skills in an informal and friendly environment. The group has changed over the years as different people have come and gone. Originally focused on watercolour, members now work in a variety of painting and drawing media, reflecting a diversity of individual styles and preferences. We do not offer formal tuition but enjoy an atmosphere of creativity, encouragement and support from each other.

The group meets every Wednesday evening from 7.30 – 9.30pm in the Alexandra Room of the Ruth Winston Centre in Palmers Green. There is a sink for water and washing out brushes etc. for those working in water soluble media and we have a dedicated cupboard where we keep a supply of paper, boards, water pots etc. and reference material for members to use. Artwork can be stored from week to week if required.

There is a termly fee to cover the cost of hiring the room. This will vary from time to time according to the number of members in the group.

If you are interested in joining the group or would like more information please call Graham Bray on 020 8363 9085 or text  Mobile: 07724 672447

The Arts Society Enfield

 arts society enfield

We are a group of enthusiasts for the arts who meet monthly for talks on various aspects of the arts -see “Lectures” for our current programme. Our meetings always start with coffee and this means there is time to make new friends or have a chat with old ones.

Besides the talks we organise coach trips to places of interest – see “Visits”- and occasional “Special Interest” days when we look at a subject in more detail. We also organise more casual regular outings to places of interest in London. details of these are available at the morning meetings and will be put on the website under "visits" when details available.
