Friday 13th of November 2015
Ouseburn is one of Newcastle’s most creative and exciting areas – often described as the creative heart of the city and for the last weekend of November the artists and creatives in the area open up their doors and allow the public to see a little of how they work. Ouseburn Open Studios is the chance to see the working world of over 200 different artists and design-makers and 2015 is a special year as the event has been taking place for 20 whole years.
Ouseburn Open Studios is taking place on 28th and 29th November and whilst the area is a little outside the city centre is can be reached with ease in your Easirent hire car. As well as showing off their diverse range of art, design and crafts, the artists at Ouseburn will have pieces for sale at a range of prices to suit every pocket.
There will be something to suit every taste with everything from paintings to ceramics and sculpture to jewellery on sale and there will also be special entertainment and refreshments put on for visitors.
Delicious food, live music and interactive workshops are organised across the two days so there is plenty to keep visitors busy and because it’s so close to the start of the festive season there will definitely be a Christmas theme to some of the available crafts, artwork and activities to enjoy. There are events especially for children as well as workshops focused on life drawing, printmaking and stained glass design. It’s the chance to release your inner creative or simply browse the works of some of Newcastle’s finest artists and makers.
