About Us



Workhouse Gallery Presteigne carpets rug repair cafe shop

The Workhouse is family business in Presteigne, Powys, that was started in the late 70’s and has evolved over the years as different family members have added their stamp to it.

What started as a carpet repair business has evolved into a carpet design studio, carpet showroom, café, gallery and shop that includes many items we design and make. 

We are aware of the impact that unchecked consumerism is having on the planet and it is important to us that we don't add to the problem.

Working closely with independent companies and individuals that focus on handmade, fair trade and ethical goods we look out for products that are made to last, with an interesting design and thoughtful production methods. Our love of travel inspires us and informs what we do from the food we serve in the café to the design of our buildings.
