discover art you love

The Tin Shed has been showcasing art and design since 2013.

We are based in North Northumberland, though our events pop-up at a variety of incredible venues across the North of England and Scottish Borders, bringing together the very best local artists and makers.

Our aim is to help these small independent arts and crafts businesses make a living from their work and also to take it to a wider audience.

As well as our pop-up fairs and exhibitions, we also have online Artists' Studios which were set up during the first lockdown as a way to keep our work in the public domain. They've continued to grow and are now home to over 50 artists from Yorkshire to the Scottish Borders.

We also recently launched a number of new fairs and exhibitions in beautiful spaces.

These include the Art in the Castle, Art at Etal, Whalton art fairs and the Louisa Waterford Prize.

Watch this space for 2024 dates and venues.


The Tin Shed has no more events till next year, but we have just launched a new online Art Store in time for everyone to do all their Christmas shopping from the comfort of their sofas.

The shop advertises specific goods for sale from our artists and makers, which can be bought directly from them.

Our new online Art Store is now officially open.

We're still stocking our virtual shelves, but there is already lots of wonderful things to tempt you and lots more to come, including paintings and prints and a huge selection of gorgeous, unique, hand-crafted gifts 

We will be adding new items regularly, so please keep popping back.

The Art Store showcases creations by artists and makers across the North of England and Scotland. Our aim to make it easy for you to contact the artists and makers and buy directly from them.
