Herefordshire Art & Craft Society, affectionately known as HACS, was founded in 1922 and is open to everyone who loves or practises the arts in Herefordshire.

HACS members work in a huge variety of media, both 2D and 3D. Everyone is welcome to join whether they have an interest in the arts or practice of art and craft.  HACS members include creatives who choose to call themselves beginners, dabblers, hobbyists, amateurs, semi-professionals, professionals and art historians. 

If you are interested in joining us why not come along to one of our monthly coffee morning meetings at The Courtyard in Hereford?  The next one is on Tuesday 3rd March at 11 am.


Our recent h.Art exhibition at Gilbies Bar and Bistro, Hereford, has now ended, but our members will be showing their work again at Gilbies in a Spring Sale starting on Wedneasday 1st April. More details soon!

Talk to other creatives


We meet each month at The Courtyard, Edgar Street, Hereford, HR4 9JR We exchange news and ideas and you will hear about our up-coming events and exhibitions. There is often a short talk or demonstration by a HACS member or others who are connected with the arts.  The meetings start at 11 am.

Our next meeting date is Tuesday 3rd March.
After that we will be meeting on Thursday 2nd April, Tuesday 5th May, Thursday 4th June and Tuesday 7th July.

Share your work

HACS Facebook page displays members’ work and shares information about local courses, art shop information, new media and tools, local and national art and craft exhibitions or fairs.

We are also on Instagram.

Members can show their work in the Members Gallery on this web site.

We arrange at least one exhibition a year, those being a mix of open and selective submission depending upon the venue and the exhibition theme.

We also offer
