The WORKERS residency space can be hired by artists and designers to run workshops & classes.

The Chair for the 2018 National Eisteddfod Cardiff was made at the WORKERS GALLERY by resident artist Chris Williams. For information on his woodworking & designer-maker workshops please use our contact form 

We are winners of The Big Draw Festival Community, Participatory and Libraries Award 2018 for resident artist Gayle Roger's workshop with Ynyshir Primary School (supported by RCT Council Art Services).

Gayle runs (currently on hold) a regular drawing workshop and a programme for drawing activities throughout the year.
