Handcrafted Gateshead

Our Gateshead hub is a versatile maker’s space where we aim to grow people’s confidence as they try out new techniques and use tools and materials creatively to make beautiful and useful items.

Places are available in our morning and afternoon sessions, five days a week, and we also run a weekly women’s group. It’s a positive and supportive place to make new friends.

We also have a cafe on-site, The Shakey, which is open Monday to Friday, 09:00–12:00 (last orders at 11:30), and a free community meal each day at 12:00–13:00.

Our Gateshead staff, Neil, Bobbie, Tom, and Jonny, are on hand to listen, support, and help attendees to make the most of the activities we run.

Jonny: For me it’s all having a good time, taking the pressure off, learning some new skills and being creative. We never take ourselves too seriously and I think that’s what makes us so appealing.
