36 Lime Street will open the doors of our grade II listed building and invite you to peek inside. Across five floors a selection of artist and maker studios will be open for you to explore.
Enjoy taster sessions and demonstrations as you wander round this extraordinary warehouse designed by John Dobson.
To help you get around from venue to venue on Saturday night free buses will be running from 7pm. CitySightseeing NewcastleGateshead Tour buses will drop off and pick up at key points on the route. There will also be a free mini-bus to help you get around the Ouseburn Valley venues on both nights.
There will also be two special exhibitions:
A pop-up exhibition with shop in our entrance gallery.
30 Years of Making it in the Ouseburn
A celebratory exhibition tracing 36 Lime Street’s fascinating history, told in members’ own words and photo archive on Level One.
36 Lime Street Late Shows Activities:
A drop-in session with Maggie Walker on level 1 (both nights).
The Learning Zone @ Ouseburn Glass
A drop-in session with Sue Woolhouse on level 1 (both nights).
Here’s an opportunity to have a quick go at a few processes and chat to Sue and Laura about developing your own creative ideas.
Message in a Bottle
Origami drop-in session with Louise Bradley on level 2 (Saturday night only).
The idea is to slow down messages and think about them more, as a contrast to emails, tweets and texts. Words are precious, and the paper bottles can be sent in the post. Take time making your ‘envelope’ and choose your words with care.
