Spring Salon Sale
The first Spring Salon brings two launches to Lime Street that celebrate the past and future of cultural heritage the Ouseburn. Colin Hagan at Northern Design will be launching Sue Bright's 'Bridging the Ouseburn', a 44 page book charting the history of bridges over the Lower Ouseburn Valley. Theresa Easton and the Ouseburn Farm will launch the Ouseburn Community Project, which invites local people to take part in designing a new printed brick trail.
36 Lime Street really is a must visit venue for the Spring Salon. Where else could you find yourself being painted into the latest Emma Holiday (for a donation to The Blood Ivory Campaign), develop a passion for glass in Sue Woolhouse's Ouseburn Glass Learners Zone, learn how to get your pet's paw prints immortalised with ceramic artist Helena Seget, and get your hands on one of Louise Bradley's exciting new prints for £25 in the first ever Silkscreen Slash Sale. Although many of the artists at Lime Street now accept credit cards, it is always worth bringing along cash or a chequebook to make sure you don't miss out on that special bargain.
Other artists opening their studio doors will be: Stevie Ronnie; Lee Turner; Julia Roxburgh; Pete Flynn; Leah Page; Jim Edwards; Zoe Garner; Graham Warren; Ross Mowbray; Fiona Gray; Joanne Mitchell; Tim Kendall; Natalie Bell; Susannah Pickering; Michael Armstrong; Stephen Brown

Nowhere else in the region will you find such a diverse group of professional artists, makers and designers. 36 Lime Street is established as one of the best studio groups in the North East with some of the most renowned, creative and imaginative artists having a reputation for quality, variety and originality.
Open on Friday and over the weekend, visit 36 Lime Street studios for a stimulating day out. Meet artists in their studios - discuss the origins of their ideas and inspirations. See a free demonstration - a great opportunity to observe professional artists at work. Do a free workshop; your chance to be creative and try it yourself.

Batch production is the process of manufacturing designs in low quantities. It affords smaller companies the freedom to react spontaneously to new market opportunities by negating the need for substantial economic and technological investment.
Multiple aims to demonstrate how designers from diverse disciplines can utilise batch production processes to realise new concepts, expand critical relationships with manufacturers and minimise the risk of experimental practice.
