Ouseburn-based studio Mushroom Works is re-opening its venture, SHOP at Mushroom Works, from Saturday 5th September. The studio, which supports seven different artists, has been working in tandem with its resident artists to curate the wares on offer.

From furniture to jewellery, the shop will stock a unique range of items created by Mushroom Works’ artists over lockdown. SHOP will give its visitors the chance to get their hands on distinctive items, all whilst supporting local creatives during this difficult period.

Amongst the items up for grabs is jewellery designed by Bronwen Deane, an artist who has been in residency at Mushroom Works since 2005. Bronwen uses both traditional and innovative techniques to create her intricate earrings and necklaces, including acrylic print methods.

Furniture from designers Nick James and Majid Lavasani will also be available to purchase; James, founder of Mushroom Works, uses traditional woodworking techniques to create his furniture, designing everything from coffee tables to shelving, while Lavasani also utilises traditional woodworking techniques to create his hand-made bespoke furniture. Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a gift, be sure to take a look at a.musing’s work, an independent designer who specialises in art that has an emotional message. Other artists whose work will be sold include Bethan Laker, Amanda Rabey and Lucinda Kelly.
