Thank you for visiting

Ouseburn Open Studios

Thank you very much to all of you who visited on 23rd and 24th November 2019 for our first official Ouseburn Open Studios. We enjoyed meeting you and had some really interesting conversations. There was a lively atmosphere and a lot of laughter in the building both days.

The weather could have been a little better on the Saturday (it poured with rain all day) but we were lucky that it wasn’t snow and ice as the last full weekend of November can be – and it was much nicer for wandering between studios on the Sunday. Some of the artists put up some colourful bunting on Sunday morning to help people see where we are and to add to the festival atmosphere.

Ouseburn Trust’s volunteer photographer, John Hipkin, did a splendid job again this year of capturing the artists, designers, makers, musicians in their studios. If you want a reminder of what you saw or to see what you missed, check out the album on their Facebook page.


Ouseburn Open Studios November 2019


There is a busy air about the studios at the moment as our artists, designers and makers prepare for our first official Ouseburn Open Studios on 23rd and 24th November 2019. We’ll be giving visitors a warm welcome from 10am to 5pm on that Saturday and Sunday.

There will be plenty of variety in the work you can see – and buy – that weekend. Some of our studio holders also offer workshops so it’s also a good opportunity to meet the people who run the workshops and maybe book one as a present for friend or family.

Our first opening


Some of the studios will be opening as part of Ouseburn Open Studios for the first time on Sunday 24th March 2019, from 10am to 5pm.

Please note: this is a one-day opening only, we won’t be open on the Saturday this time. Not all the studios will be open on the Sunday. These are new studios and not all the occupants have moved in yet but there should be plenty to see (and buy!).
