STUDIO

Welcome to The Tin Shed's Durham, Teesside and Yorkshire Art Studio.

This is where you can meet artists and makers living and working across these vast and beautiful areas. Browse from the lists below and click on the links to visit their own websites to see more of their work and visit their shops. It's a great way to support these small independent businesses.

Our Studios are great places for artists to get together too, because with so many venues closed and events cancelled, it's never been more important to strengthen creative communities.

Please visit our Artists' Studios in other areas, including Northumberland/Scottish Borders and Tyneside/Wearside.
