Ouseburn is surely the most delightful of Newcastle’s neighbourhoods for music and the creative arts, and this creativity will be on full show this winter with the return of the annual Ouseburn Open Studios on Saturday 26thSunday 27th November.  

The weekend sees seven venues opening their doors to the public, including 36 Lime Street, B. Box Studios, Biscuit Tin Studios, Cobalt Studios, Northern Print, The Jim Edwards Studio Gallery and Mushroom Works.  

People will be able to get an insight into some of these studios and the artists that call them home, with a huge range of creative work on display, plus a range of activities for all ages. Coming at an excellent time for Christmas gift shopping for that particularly choosy friend, attendees will be spoiled for choice, with prints and paintings to ceramics and jewellery plus much more on display. The Biscuit Factory’s offering in particular will be a real celebration, as they mark their 20th anniversary with pop-up offerings from local artists throughout the weekend; while Cobalt’s offering is typically inventive, with a monoprint embossing powder workshop on Saturday and a risograph print market with added DJs, food and more on Sunday.

36 Lime Street will also be holding a raffle to fundraise for Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, which will include covetable letter press tickets, hand-printed by Hole Editions’ Lee Turner.  

Ouseburn Open Studios takes place at various venues in the Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November.
