To improve the skills and knowledge of all members by setting projects, discussing the results amongst all by open discussion and instruction from each member on how they tackled the project and got to the end result, even if they feel it failed. Each member must be prepared to help/instruct other members on how they achieved each project.
There will be a meeting once a month for most of the year. Meetings will also give a chance for participants to ask for help from others in any area they require, EG. Resizing, mounting, entering exhibitions etc.
