We are going to Living North LIVE!

During the last weekend of March you’ll be able to catch some of our studio holders at the Living North LIVE fair held at Newcastle Racecourse. The fair, which focuses on interiors, homes, gardens, lifestyle and food, takes place over Friday 26, Saturday 27 and Sunday 28th March. As well a variety of regional exhibitors there’ll be demonstrations and talks, one of which features our very own Nick James, Sarah Blood, Michael Armstrong (AFID Design) and Bettina Nissen.

Here's some information about the artists, if you didn't know already...... Nick James is situated in Studio 1 in the Mushroom Works and is a designer maker of high quality, unique and creative furniture. Also sharing Studio 1, Michael Armstrong runs of AFID Design provides a commissioned based service producing beautiful, modern, hand-made furniture. Next door in Studio 2 you can find Sarah Blood, a visual artist whose primary medium is light, explored through neon and mixed media. The final artist taking part in this event is Bettina Nissen, a product designer who specializes in witty, thoughtful and very desirable designs!

The Mushroom Works artists can be found at stands S45 & S46 in the Tattersall Hall of the Home & Gardens section, so keep an eye out if you're popping along, and make sure you say hello!

Speaking of keeping an eye out, we have new faces in and around the Mushroom Works these days! Graeme, who started just today is Mushroom Works very own caretaker, making sure the place looks spik and span and Justin, who started with us on Monday will be helping us with a few new workspace developments (more on this later!) .
