The region has a strong streak of artistic design running through it, from the creation of the Northumbrian tartan, one of the earliest recorded tartans in the world, to providing the university education for the designer of the ipod!
This design streak is nowhere more visible than in the area of decorative arts. This broad area includes everything from incredible work in precious metals to the great industrial decorative art design and production works in glass and ceramics.
Today the region also boasts the largest craft and design collection outside London at the Shipley Art Gallery, and a flourishing community of North East designers and makers.
