There is a dwarf that "has been possessed" and now he's in the meeting hall waiting for something. I'm guessing I don't have the workshop he needs but how can I found out?

Check his skills.

He's likely to want a workshop related to one of the skills he already has.

Note that precursor making skills like weaving and mining relate to the workshop to which the production skill is related; a weaver will want a Clothiers Workshop; a miner will want a Masons Workshop; and a tanner, if they mood at all, will want leather works.

Note that he's most likely looking for the workshop associated with his /highest/ skill. Of course, if that turns out to be glassblowing and you're on a non-sandy-area map, you have a problem... – Shadur Dec 2 '11 at 9:18
@Shadur: Nope; not as long as you've picked a few pieces of glass off of the merchants; moody glass makers don't use sand, they use raw glass. – Williham Totland Dec 2 '11 at 9:21
The merchant has just gone and I bought only "big guns" for my army. Yep, I'm a sociopath. Tnx for the advice, I'll look into his skills. – dierre Dec 2 '11 at 13:30
Ok, it's a glass maker and he needs green glass but I have red sand.I even need a bag. I just builded walls around the workshop for now. – dierre Dec 2 '11 at 18:52
@dierre: All kinds of sand give the same kind of glass. Red sand will make green glass, as will yellow, white and black. After all, there's no green sand, is there? – Williham Totland Dec 5 '11 at 5:58
