Royal Porcelain Works is approaching completion of its city centre, creative work space for the arts.

The original painting house will be incubation space for start-up creative businesses and artists, creating a buzzing artist community. The ground floor and first floor workshop spaces will be available either as single spaces or shared collective working spaces for artists, ceramicists, potters, photographers and alike.

The new offering will also house an independent retail unit which will enable artists working on-site to sell their wares.

Office space within the city is extremely limited and Royal Porcelain Works are delighted to offer 1,940sq ft in a penthouse office space, complete with roof terrace, plus 2,250sq ft first floor office space above the Nest café, both of which are available for creative businesses, who would like to be a part of this incredible centre for the arts.

"Royal Porcelain Works raises the profile of the fantastic level of creativity and craftsmanship that exists locally, helping ensure these skills remain relevant to future generations and those traditions for which the city of Worcester is renowned live on".

Sara Matthews, General Manager at Royal Porcelain Works

Royal Porcelain Works is a vibrant new cultural development in the heart of historic Worcester that features arts and crafts, a brand-new exhibition space, a fabulous new eatery and the world-renowned Museum of Royal Worcester.  Located at Worcester’s famous Royal Porcelain Works, this exciting new development is a hub of activity and events for members of the local community as well as visitors to Worcester.

Royal Porcelain works, originally founded by Robert Chamberlain in Severn Street, has been redeveloped by the Bransford Trust to create a new centre for the arts in Worcester – featuring The ‘Henry Sandon’ Hall. The 1852 showroom is at the heart of the development, refurbished to become a 140 seat capacity venue, equipped with the latest audio visual technology.

The Hall sits alongside The Nest; a unique, quirky, casual but comfortable, family friendly licensed Café/Deli serving wonderful fresh, simple food, delicious fair-trade coffee and teas, with an excellent bakery section featuring artisan breads and cakes, regional beers, wines and spirits. Above the Nest is The Studio, named after Sam Driver White, a space dedicated to providing facilities and opportunity for local artists and craftspeople to showcase their work and demonstrate their skills, in a purpose-built arts workshop and studio. These facilities, alongside a gallery and a courtyard, are host to an eclectic mix of events; including theatre, cinema, talks, antiques fairs, farmer’s markets and art workshops and exhibitions.
