Mushroom Works love this time of year as we begin getting ready to open the doors and welcome visitors in to explore and shop at this year’s Ouseburn Open Studios. All of the artists and designers will be around in their studios, so take the opportunity to come and meet them and discover what they do and why they love being creative.

There’ll be incredible gift ideas available to choose from with furniture, paintings, textile and leather products, jewellery, prints, illustrations, items for the home and unique ‘stocking fillers’ all available to buy or commission direct from the artists and designers. Don’t miss the ‘once-a-year’ showcase of original 20x20 artworks (measuring 20cm x 20cm) all available to buy over the weekend priced at an unbeatable £20!!!

Once you've explored and shopped to your heart’s content, soak up the festive atmosphere a little longer in our cosy café with a selection of hot and cold drinks, cakes, and locally reared hog roast. Don’t forget to enter the free festive selfie competition in our Christmas manger for a chance to win a unique prize. Come and take a different approach to shopping and feeling festive in the run-up to Christmas. Look out for our Open Studios flyer in all cultural outlets.
