Our History

(below) Moira’s last afternoon at LAW in May 2008 before moving away to the Gower. L to r: Lynne Cradock, Beryl Pepperell, Moira, Elizabeth Davis (partly hidden) and Ann Pugh.

Our numbers started to dwindle and necessitated a move to the small room in the Memorial Hall for 2014. We did move back to the main hall for a while, but soon had to move back again to the small hall!

There is a great deal more to write about the history of the Art Workshop. I would, however, be very grateful for any information regarding the early history of the Art Workshop and before it, the Lisvane Arts Society.
