So, I am just trying GNOME workspace and find it really helpful. I want to know though, is it possible to generate n workspace on startup and assign their own category (in which application is hidden in some workspace, but available in others)? For example, I am assigning workspace 1 for 'work', where only work related applications is enabled, and workspace 2 for 'entertainment' where other applications is enabled.

My intention is to allow myself fun by the rest period in pomodoro cycle and returning to focus during the period where I had to focus.

There is a GNOME shell extension called Auto Move Windows that allows you to assign a workspace for a specific program to start on. For your example you could have all of your work programs start on workspace 1 and all of your entertainment programs start on workspace 2. I think this is the easiest way to get behavior similar to what you are asking for.
