Community Engagement
Weekly Workshops and Classes at Hafren

Hafren uses the power of the arts to enrich people's lives, making connections to give people an opportunity to discover more about the arts and their own creativity. Engagement work in our local communities has developed at a rapid rate and Hafren now houses an ever growing amount of participation and community led activities that both challenge and inspire.

Details of our current in-house workshops and classes are detailed below.
