36 L Ime Street W Inter Showcase

Each year, the resident artists who call Newcastle's cultural quarter - Ouseburn - their home, come together to sell their products and allow visitors to nosy around their studios. Due to the covid lockdown, the popular Ouseburn Open Studios has gone online instead for 2020.

You can now browse 36 Lime Street Winter Showcase online and buy all your Christmas gifts from local and independent artists, creatives and designers.

Immerse yourself in a celebration of creativity! Although November’s Open Studios event can’t take place this year, the good news is that you can still purchase work by contacting the North East artists and makers directly or visiting their online shops.

Treat yourself or a loved one to high quality handmade arts and crafts this Christmas. You have the opportunity to contact the artists to make appointments to visit studios safely too.
