Nestled in the heart of the Strumble Head Peninsula, surrounded by the Irish Sea the Pembrokeshire National Park, Workshop Wales Gallery offers a glorious platform for both indoor and outdoor artwork. The gallery showroom offers an expansive space for enjoying an eclectic mix of paintings, sculptures, and ceramics from a range of skilled creators. We exihibit over 30 hand selected artists from Pembrokeshire and across the UK. Founded in 1970 by John and Lel Cleal, Workshop Wales Gallery was originally based in Lowertown, Fishguard, where it quickly became a national hub for arts and crafts in Wales and beyond. In the 70s and 80s the gallery was a centre for craft and artwork, with branches in Cardiff and London. John was a prolific artist himself, experiementing and refining his skills in a variety of different styles and media including leatherwork, wood and stone carvings, and, of course, sketching and painting. An insiprational figure, John's pioneering influence on the arts is far reaching. In 1997, the gallery was succeeded by Mitch Cleal, moving to its current site in Manorowen, where it is still run by his son, Geno. Today the gallery still shines a light on contemporary art here in Wales, providing a plarform for artists and a intruiging attraction for visitors and locals alike.
