Also part of the International Print Biennale, the Ouseburn Community Project will be showcasing a collection of handmade, colourful bricks in and around the Ouseburn Farm.  Stevie Ronnie, working with Ouseburn-based vintage clothing store Small Change,  makes a new piece of work that plays with poetry and print. Maggie Walker’s ceramic pieces are the result of a convergence of interests: a reflection on how printmaking techniques might transfer on to clay. Also showing Louise Bradley’s linear and colourful screenprinted responses to the Ouseburn Valley’s weeds, a visual response to plants flowering in the first few months of the year on road and path verges and waste ground.

The Ouseburn Community Project use household bricks, supplied by Ibstock Brick Factory in Birtley, Gateshead,  to reference the Ouseburn Valley’s unique identity. Working with local residents in the inspiring environment of the Ouseburn Farm, the Ouseburn Community Project has unearthed stories of expeditions into the Ouseburn culvert, vanishing street names and the rules & regulations imposed on workers in the industrial valley. Exhibiting alongside the hand made bricks, Theresa Easton presents recycled dress patterns printed with the rules and regulations of the Ouseburn Pottery and folded books inspired by Wilf Handley’s Domestos Factory.

First produced in 1929 by Wilfred Handley, Domestos was manufactured in the Ouseburn Valley, Albion Road 1940. Based at College works, the factory not only housed Domestos production, but also Stergene and Sqezy.
