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.
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.
Sandra has many of her lovely handmade pieces of jewellery with her, which she makes using Eco Silver, and then finishes them with whatever pretty stones she can find. Sandra welcomes commissions and is happy to discuss any of your own ideas.
Kate takes inspiration from places she visits, and try’s to create the scenes through painting with the clay to create her polymer clay jewellery. All of her pieces are made using hypoallergenic stainless steel, 18K gold and sterling silver.
Jackie has a large and varied collection of handmade jewellery, made using various beads and stones, plus some hair accessories and keyrings, and some pewter trinket boxes. Jackie is also able to offer a repair service on any of your own broken treasured pieces.
