Join us at 36 Lime Street for 2017’s biggest Open Studios event on the last weekend in November.

Located in the heart of the Ouseburn Valley, 36 Lime Street houses over 40 artists, makers, designers and musicians and we invite you to join us for 2017’s biggest open studios event. This is an opportunity to explore our quirky listed building, a warehouse designed by John Dobson, and to take a look behind the scenes into the work spaces of resident artists. See high quality work by a range of creative practitioners, meet the makers and enjoy a festive atmosphere with gift ideas from paintings and prints to sculpture, jewellery, textiles, furniture and glass plus half-hourly piano performances.

This year’s gallery exhibition will give visitors the chance to get involved:
Drawn In will include new drawings of views from 36 Lime Street by studio holders.
Drawn Out enables visitors to engage with, draw and display views within the building.

Presented as part of DRAWING, a programme of exhibitions and events across the North East England region that pose the question: does DRAWING matter? www.drawingne.org.uk

And you can help us maintain our amazing building by purchasing one of our covetable letterpress raffle tickets, which feature prints of members’ work hand-printed by Hole Editions. These are a prize in themselves with only 100 of each design available to buy. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the event.
