Visiting Artists

demonstrations & workshops

Every month, we have a variety of talented craftspeople who visit Afonwen Craft & Antique Centre. They’ll usually bring along a sample of their beautiful collections, perform entrancing demonstrations of their skills, and chat about their beautiful work.

We have visiting artists who specialise in:
Jewellery making, textile work, stichwork, weaving, illustration, painting (with various materials), hot wax art, greeting cards, and much more.

Upcoming Events

On occasions, artists might change the dates that they’re visiting us or might be unable to attend on short notice. If you are planning a visit to see a particular artist, please call in advance to check if the schedule is correct.
