Due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, we have followed Government advice and our building will be temporarily closed until further notice.

Administration staff will be working from home and we’ll do our best to keep things rolling and everyone informed.

Our plan is to postpone all Easter holiday workshops until the summer holidays and for weekly classes, we have rescheduled the beginning of next term to w/c 1 June. There will be an additional 2 weeks as part of that term to reimburse current participants. Please keep checking our website and social media channels for further details.

We understand it’s a very uncertain time for everyone, including our freelance tutors and part time staff. Rest assured we’re keeping in touch with everyone and trying our best to support each other in these difficult circumstances.

Stay connected, please share with us your creative moments and endeavours. Let’s do all we can together to make social distancing and isolation more bearable.

Here are a few words from our Director, Hannah Phillips; “Our ‘Space to Create’ has temporarily closed but there are always spaces to create in our homes, in our gardens, virtually and in our imaginations. The space will reopen and it will be full of new creative energy, artists and participants wanting to make new work. Let’s all try and focus on the bits we can control. Take time to read, rest, meditate, make, dance, sing, bake and play. Let’s stay connected through our art, our values and our community.”

Thanks everyone, wishing you all the best.

The team at Worcester Arts Workshop.

Stop for a coffee


Swing by the WAW cafe for a drink or a snack, in a chilled out and welcoming space. Creativity is everywhere here, from the artwork-filled walls to the materials we provide for anyone who’s inspired to doodle while they drink. Topped off with great coffee, cracking beers and great snacks, this is a cafe with heart and soul – where everyone is welcome.

In need of refuelling?
We are so proud to have our wraps and cakes supplied by local vegan lounge “Be The Change”
Your taste-buds are in for a treat!
Today’s menu has been chosen & freshly made for you, across the road at the kitchens of Be The Change Foods.

Hoi Sin Dukk Wrap £3–
contains soy, gluten & sesame
No, we’ve not misspelled it! As well as cucumber & spring onions, this floury tortilla wrap is packed with the beautiful sweetness, texture & tenderness of Hoi Sin duck, but amazingly, made instead with soy & wheat protein. Everyone’s a winner! This one is Hannah’s favourite!

Tofu-Egg Mayo Wrap £3–
contains soy & gluten
You won’t believe this is egg-free! The beautiful texture of organic tofu, the taste of black salt & the colour of turmeric help to make this classic wrap filling, but without cracking an egg! We’ve also got some spinach in there too, to hit those nutrition goals, as well as giving a cheeky crunch.

Chocolate Brownies contain soy £2-50
Perfectly-gooey brownies, guaranteed to leave you with a smile…and maybe a smudge of chocolate…on your face.
