Visiting Artists

Afonwen Craft & Antique Centre will be reopening on the 13th April with slightly reduced opening times (10:00am to 4:00pm). From this date, our visiting artists will be back demonstrating and showing off their work. You’ll also be able to browse our gift shop and antique collection, as well as purchase takeaway drinks and cakes from Edenshine Restaurant.

We’re hoping to offer outside dining from the 26th April. However, we’re still waiting for confirmation from the Welsh Government. For the latest updates, follow us on Facebook or give us a call on 01352 720797.

You can still order takeaway food from Edenshine Restaurant. You can place an order over the phone and collect it from the centre without leaving your car. Click the button below to find out more.
