What are Study Days?
The chosen subject is studied in depth, generally with three lectures interspersed by coffee and lunch breaks, a chance to socialise, meet the lecturer and discuss the subject informally. Sometimes participants bring along relevant items for appraisal or valuation by the lecturer such as silver, porcelain or jewellery.
Study days are generally limited to around thirty people. Members may bring friends, depending on the demand for places. Most Societies hold at least one Study Day – or Day of Special Interest – per year.
Can I attend a Study Day?
Kent Area Study Days can be attended by any NADFAS member in Kent. If there are spare places, guests may be taken, paying the same amount for their ticket. However, these days are usually so popular that there is a waiting list. Members enjoy meeting people from other DFAS in Kent.
Society Study Days (or Days of Special Interest) are normally open to members and their guests.
National Study Days are open to all NADFAS members. These are publicised in NADFAS Review. Some Area Study Days (eg Greater London) are also advertised and places can be applied for by members from any DFAS.
