In 1906, a small exhibition was held at Hinton St Mary and its success led to the formation of the Dorset Arts and Crafts Association in 1907. The Association's first exhibition was held at Blandford Corn Exchange in 1907 and exhibitions have been held annually, apart from a break for the second world war years. Our 100th Exhibition was held at the Purbeck School, Wareham in 2014.Read More
