Enjoy a Creative Christmas at Newcastle Common

Visit Newcastle Common to welcome their guest creatives within the 23 High Street space between 20th and 21st December.

Each week, at Newcastle Common’s High Street space, there will be a different creative talent for you to meet and chat with, whilst discovering how they do what they do. There will also be weekly workshops led by each of the ‘pop up’ artists, relating to their work, as part of this fantastic festive offering. So not only will you be able to buy their creations but have a go at creating something yourself!

20th November – 27th November Cushy Paws, Grace Ellena
29th November – 4th December Travelling Tea Cake, Laura Beech
7th December – 11th December Chloe Breeze Illustration, Chloe Breeze
14th December – 21st December Shelley Jayne Crawford Illustration, including the launch of our first ‘Town Trail’!

This is a great opportunity to see the magic behind cleverly designed and carefully crafted giftware, clothing, artwork and home accessories, as well as bagging some special Christmas gifts. We will also have available to buy our own Newcastle Common range of artwork and products by some of our previous Artists in Residence, to include postcards and prints of paintings by Ian Mood and a range of Newcastle Common branded items.
