Happy birthday, BALTIC! – Tatty Devine

Happy birthday, BALTIC! – Tatty Devine

 

All the most effective birthdays require misty-eyed, cake-fuelled reminiscing and this is no distinctive. Staff Tatty Devine has been a enthusiast of BALTIC Centre for Modern day Artwork at any time considering the fact that we very first frequented the transformed flour mill. Standing proudly on the banking institutions of the River Tyne, it’s a cultural spot not just for the North, but the globe and we have been blessed more than enough to group up with the visionaries more than the years.

 

  

I’M LOVING ANGELS Instead

In 2008, to mark artist Anthony Gormley’s famous sculpture Angel of the North and its 10th anniversary, we designed a very particular Tatty Devine tribute. The Tatty Devine Angel of the North Necklace can be located in jewelry boxes and adorning the necks of architecture fans all over the world. We scaled down the 200 tonne Gateshead icon and recreated its towering framework in shining graphite mirror acrylic, laser-cut and etched to recreate the rivets on its metal variety. Glimpse out for a celebratory update on this wearable icon, in gleaming gold mirror, exclusively obtainable at BALTIC! Store here.

 

 

 

Clearly show YOUR BONES

In 2013, we headed to BALTIC for a spookily fantastic Halloween jewellery making workshop. A host of witches, ghouls, warlocks and creatures of the evening joined us to Swarovski jewels to candy colored, cute Perspex bones. The result? A statement necklace you’d genuinely (grave) dig. Reminisce with workshopper Rachel Kershaw in this article. It’s not the only time we’ve packed up our pliers for a road excursion.

 

 

In 2015, our Co-Founders Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine headed back again to Gateshead to share the tale of their inventive journey. We’re massive believers in inspiring the next era of makers and it’s one of our favourite excuses to make the journey to Gateshead and beyond! Fancy a trip about to the Toon? Peep our favourite North East spots in this article. From Chelsea University of Artwork to Brick Lane, by way of bags of leftover leather-based, possibility encounters with Vogue magazine and a whole lot of Belle and Sebastian, BALTIC’s friends received the insider scoop. If you had been there, share your snaps with us above on Instagram Stories – we’d like to see!

 

 

 We beloved receiving crafty once far more at workshops, and observing our initial-time crafters make celebratory Bunting Necklaces and Parakeet Necklace which flew straight out the famed cultural centre’s doors!
