STUDIO ARTISTS

AT THE HEARTH

The Hearth has provided affordable studio spaces for eight resident artists and makers since 2004. Their disciplines include printmaking, textiles, ceramics, jewellery, metal clocks, painting and illustration.

 

They are inspired by the rich cultural heritage, landscape and wildlife of the North East of England. A visit to their studios offers a unique opportunity to see them at work and to purchase high quality, accessible artworks, made by experienced professionals. Our talented artists have been featured in national magazines, published books and been awarded public art commissions. They have raised the profile of the arts in the region with their exhibitions and biannual art fairs.

 

Our resident artists welcome you to visit their studios and to attend their practical and engaging workshops.

THE ARTISTS WELCOME YOU TO VISIT THEM IN THEIR STUDIOS 

A studio visit provides you with an opportunity to meet the artist, learn about their studio practice and to purchase original artworks, greeting cards and gifts. Working to commission and bespoke services are offered by some. Artist's work can also be purchased from their own websites, details of which can be found within their biographies above.
