Spring Open Studios

EVENT | 25th - 26th March 2023 | 10am - 5pm | FREE ENTRY

Emerge from Winter into Spring Open Studios! 36 Lime Street in the Ouseburn, Newcastle, hosts a fresh, creative and social art and design weekend.

Explore the wealth of talent over five floors of our beautiful listed building.

See how work is produced and chat with the artists about their processes and materials: art, design, jewellery, glass, furniture, architecture, music, printmaking, painting, pottery, textiles and more!

Buy direct! You can commission items as well as buy“off the wall”.

Most makers now take debit/credit cards (but best to arm yourselves with some cash!).
