We are a private initiative in the Ouseburn valley, started below Byker bridge (On the Newcastle side), at present we do not boast large shops and office space, we do however boast a friendly workshop space where you can happily come and speak to our designers, or pick out furniture yourself, If you see it in our online store then feel free to come view it in our studio, some items may be in storage so please give us a call in advance so not to be disappointed.

Nicki Hornby is studying for a Creative Writing MA at Newcastle University.  She joined the course to hone script writing skills, but is embracing the opportunity of writing poems and prose.  She works as a BBC Journalist, and has made documentaries for Radio and TV. Originally from the Wirral she moved to the North East in 1986 to run a Health Food Shop.  She’s been writing on and off since Primary School, and her ten minute Radio play was broadcast on BBC Newcastle in 2005.

Since her son moved out to University she lives on her own. Yeah, not even a cat.
