36 Lime Street Gallery
Our gallery has an annual programme of exhibitions that runs between April – December. In addition the gallery hosts various pop-up shops and exhibitions to coincide with open studios events and community activities.
Information for artists
We run an open call annually late winter to select exhibiting artists for the coming year. Please sign up to our mailing list if you would like to hear from us about future opportunities.
36 Lime Street Gallery was established in 2009 and is run by a committee of 36 Lime Street members.
We host a programme of events throughout the year. Annual open studios events invite visitors to explore the building, meet the artists and makers in their workshops, take part in activities and provide an opportunity to either buy direct from the makers or discuss commissions. Annual events include the Spring Salon Sale in March, The Late Shows in May, and Ouseburn Open Studios in November.
We also host special events, exhibitions and activities as part of Ouseburn Festival in July and Heritage Open Days in September.
Workshops, classes and courses are hosted by artists and makers within their studios or the gallery. We are keen to share our knowledge, skills and experience with enthusiasts who are interested in creating artwork of their own.
We provide workshops throughout the year in glassmaking, printmaking, painting, drawing, and other disciplines. These are designed to suit learners of all abilities, from beginners wanting to try something new, through to master classes for those who want to advance their skills – see individual listings for details.
Bespoke workshops can also be provided for individuals or groups. You can find the creative practitioner you are interested in working with by browsing the Studio Residents section of the site or searching by specialism in the same section. Alternatively get in touch with the 36 Lime Street office to discuss possibilities.
