Sat 29th & Sun 30th November 2014
The Ouseburn Valley is the creative heart of Newcastle. On the last weekend of November the Ouseburn Open Studios event sees venues open their doors, offering a unique chance to come and glimpse the working world of over 200 artists and designer-makers. There’s a huge variety of affordable and original work to buy, from paintings, ceramics, sculpture, jewellery, furniture, prints, and much more to suit everyone’s taste.
Open Studios is an ideal opportunity to purchase one-off pieces that aren’t available from the high street. Purchasing or commissioning original art, craft and design led products for Christmas means your gifts are unique, personal and that extra bit special.
Most of our venues offer some much needed nourishment and refreshment for your break in between studios. From vintage inspired tea and cake stalls to hearty seasonal fayre and a la carte dining, we have everything to keep you fed and watered during your visit.
With live music, delicious food and interactive workshops, head to Ouseburn for some seasonal spirit and Christmas stocking goodies.
Finally, don’t forget to follow all of the goings-on across each venue via Twitter.
FREE bus service | 12pm - 4pm, both days
To make it easier to visit each of our studios throughout the weekend., we run a free bus service which drops off and collects from each venue.
The route starts at The Biscuit Tin then visits The Biscuit Factory, Northern Print, 36 Lime Street, Toffee Factory, Mushroom Works, then back to The Biscuit Tin on a loop, taking around 25 minutes to visit the 6 venues. Please check out our map to view the route.
