The Royal Porcelain Works, originally founded by Robert Chamberlain in Severn Street and has been redeveloped by the Bransford Trust to create a new centre for the arts in 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.
The re-development of the Porcelain Works seeks to raise the profile of the fantastic level of artistry and craftsmanship that exists locally, helping ensure these skills remain relevant to future generations and that traditions for which the city of Worcester is renowned live on.
