Places we are visiting this month in the North East!

House of Objects
For four Saturdays in June, House of Objects Creative Recycling Centre at the Rising Sun will open its doors for visitors to come and explore its Aladdin’s cave of weird and wonderful recycled materials and get creative in its specialist studio space. The theme for each week will be a particular object of significance that was invented or developed in the North East. For more information click here.
NOTE - House of Objects receive old/waste/unwanted (but still useable!!) materials, so if you are a company, shop or artist clearing out your studio then get in touch with them!!

Heritage Skills Festival returns to Tynemouth Station on 28th-30th June, offering visitors a chance to try their hand at a wide range of heritage crafts such as stonemasonry, green woodworking, blacksmithing, lime mortar, leather working and much, much more.  Working with professionals, you’ll also get the opportunity to get advice and learn more about the heritage of the North East. Event information
