Welcome to the Hoylandswaine Arts Group website!

We are a friendly group who like to welcome new members and visitors www.dream-trading.co.za/1xbet-promo-code-and-deposit-bonus . A charity established in 2005 and evolving from a previous music group that had been going since 1988, we are passionate about bringing art to the heart of the Hoylandswaine community, with professionals and amateurs working together in partnership. The group has thus far been successful in raising funding to allow this work to flourish.


Local artist John Roddam Spencer Stanhope, (second wave pre-raphaelite painter), is a focus for Hoylandswaine Arts over the next few years as we have been awarded funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore his spectacular mural that was puzzlingly painted over in the 1960’s in Hoylandswaine’s St John the Evangelist Church . This work is being carried out in partnership with the Parish Church Council.

The wall painting is entitled the Ascendency of Christ and complements a stunning stained glass window made in the William Morris factory and probably designed by Edward Burne-Jones that 1x bet deposit bonus
was given by the Spencer Stanhope  family in memory of Roddam’s sister Louisa who died in 1867.

In addition to the church painting restoration we run regular art classes using different mediums and currently have two textile projects on the go – one to create an altar cloth to reflect Roddam’s pre-raphaelite concepts of Truth, Beauty and Love, and one to create a community banner to be displayed in different venues around the village. We also host concerts, recitals, exhibitions, garden parties, storytelling evenings, music and dance workshops for children/teens and fundraising events. We are currently trying to get a village music group or ensemble underway – if you are interested please complete
