MADE NORTH in partnership with Toffee Factory presents MADE Fresh, a collection of the most exciting new work being produced by Northern designers and makers. The pop up will feature contemporary design objects by emerging as well as established designer/makers from the North of England. The unique aspect of MADE Fresh is that everything on sale is has been exclusively produced in the last 12 months. These original works are priced between £10 and £150, and card payment facilities will be available. Perfectly timed for those Christmas presents! And Pizzette will be on hand under the arch outside throughout each afternoon, serving freshly made pizzas with unusual ingredients – both sweet and savoury!

Toffee Factory MADE Fresh event will be open during Ouseburn Open Studios on Saturday 23rd November and 24th November, between 10 and 5pm.

Patrick Murphy from MADE NORTH says,“It’s great to be working with Toffee Factory again, after such a successful collaboration as part of the Northern Design Festival. Ouseburn is a great area and we look forward to showing a selection of exciting new design from northern talent.”

MADE Fresh is part of a wider event, Ouseburn Open Studios, which sees designers/makers in Ouseburn Valley open up their studios to the public, who can get a glimpse into how they work. It is one of the highlights of the Christmas shopping calendar, and a chance to meet and support local artists by buying directly or commissioning original gifts and artwork, 10 to 5pm on 23rd and 24th November 2013


Lisa Tolan from Creative Space Management says,“We’re delighted to partner up with MADE NORTH for Ouseburn Open Studios and look forward to seeing our venue transformed once more into an inspiring selling gallery. There is always a lovely atmosphere across the Valley for the studios weekend and we expect visitors in their hundreds through our doors. With Toffee Factory being just one of eight venues involved, there is sure to be something for everyone – take your chance to buy original affordable work and explore the wider Ouseburn Valley.”

what our clients say:

"The team at the Toffee Factory do a great job in fuelling a creative work place. They put a lot of effort into what many landlords might consider to be the softer side of working life such as organising exciting food, cultural and leisure events. These things make a big positive difference to creative teams like ours and the other businesses in the building."
