If you have the money, buying a Workshop is simple. Head to a large town, one with a Tavern and the other special locations like the Arena. Choose to take a walk around the town. Once you’re in the town, hold Left Alt and look for Workshops. There’s usually at least 3-4 in a town. Once you’re inside a Workshop, speak with a Worker. This is where you have the option to purchase the Workshop. You’re given a price and then once purchased, you can select which Workshop you want to create.

Update: I then purchased a Smithy that, after a few days, is currently making +825 per day. There’s definitely value here but you will need to experiment with what Workshops work best in what areas.
