Ouseburn Open Studios 2018


The Ouseburn Valley has a well-earned reputation as being Newcastle's cultural hub. Over the last weekend of November the Ouseburn Open Studios event sees venues open their doors, offering a unique chance to come and glimpse into the working world of over 200 artists and designer-makers.

You’re invited to discover what artists do all day at 36 Lime Street’s Open Studios weekend, a special opportunity to buy direct from the makers, commission an artwork or bespoke design and meet the artists themselves.  Find out what inspires them and how they create their work.

The Biscuit Factory |

No more bad gifts is our mantra this season. Buy something handmade and original! Taking inspiration from our headline show A Northern Winter, the gallery will be decked with local and seasonal flourishes, twinkling lights paint your own Christmas bauble and enjoy a sing-a-long brunch in The Factory Kitchen.

Biscuit Tin |

Biscuit Tin Studios is where the arts is. An ex-factory unit it has been transformed into forty studios which are now host to artists, printmakers, designers and creatives working across a variety of themes, styles and media.
