The Combined Art Societies (CASS), with fourteen member societies, aim to unite and strengthen the standing of art societies in our community, to gain greater recognition for art societies, and to encourage a standard of excellence among individual artists within our societies. Their Art in Action weekend is one of their major annual events, this year happening from Friday 16th May to Sunday 18th May and workshop bookings are now open.
