Pembrokeshire National Park, Workshop Wales Gallery is a powerful and moving place to see Art. The Gallery was founded in 1970 by John and Lel Cleal and has been at the forefront of the contemporary Art scene in Wales ever since. John was a well-recognised and acclaimed Artist in his own right, and set the very high standards that have become synonymous with Workshop Wales. In 1997 after 26 years of running the business, John and Lel retired leaving the Business to their son Mitchell, also an Artist, who has carried on the tradition of showing highly skilled original works of Art. Throughout the 40 or so year’s history, the family run Gallery has been influential in promoting and stimulating the awareness and creativity of Art.
