Here are some things that are useful to know when attending Art Workshop courses.

Where are you Located?

The Art Workshop Studios are located at Lon Fach, Rhiwbina, Cardiff CF14 6DY.


Rhiwbina train station is close by, and there are regular Cardiff buses to the village.

Is there Parking?

Rhiwbina Village has on street parking just a minute’s walk from the studios. There is no parking in Lon Fach outside the studios, but if you have any mobility needs please let us know as we may be able to make arrangements for you.

How do I gain entry?

Please come to the side entrance and ring the doorbell for admission. Classes may be in progress so please be patient until a member of the team arrives.

What Materials do I need?

Each course has its own materials requirements which will be explained at the first session. If materials are not included (usually for termly courses) you can purchase relevant items from The Art Workshop Student Shop, sourced to provide you with the best quality at reasonable prices. You are welcome to source and bring your own materials too.

Are there Refreshments?

Tea and Coffee are available, the team is always happy to make a round of hot drinks before class starts. There’s an honesty jam jar for contributions which are much appreciated. You are welcome to bring your own refreshments too, we just ask that you take any packaging, cups, cans etc away as we are limited to the amount of waste we produce.

What is the Cancellation Policy?

We are sorry we cannot offer refunds, discounts or transfers for classes missed for any reason, as your place is reserved for you and cannot be given to anyone else, tutors booked and preparations made. Cancellation less than two weeks before the start of a course or workshop date will be charged.

What if I need to wait for someone in a class?

Rhiwbina has a range of great independent shops to browse in and cafes if you need to wait. We recommend Snails Deli, the Secret Shed, The Whittaker Lounge church café, Coffee Labs and Parsons Bakery. There are several parks to enjoy, as well as the historic listed Garden Village, and Rhiwbina Library will be reopening soon after its refurbishment. We are sorry you cannot wait in Lon Fach which only has private parking, but there is ample on street parking around the corner in the village.


We look forward to welcoming you to The Art Workshop!
