Synergy Craft and Design Studios

Synergy Studios is a new exciting craft and design shop and workshop space nested in the Mourne mountains, looking out over the sea in Newcastle County Down. Synergy Studios encourages and supports local artists, makers and designers to produce and sell their work, including younger new arrivals on the craft scene. The shop stocks a wide selection of items at a range of prices, from the small gift or souvenir to the more expensive special gift or purchase. Work on sale is all unique and includes screenprinted t-shirts and designer fashion, ceramics, jewellery (including some made specially for Synergy) wood, fused glass, prints, lithographs and textiles.

Much of the work is inspired by nature, weaving together natural materials and local creativity with the energy and vitality of the Mourne Mountains. The Studios also champions work that has been made to have a low impact on the environment.
Alongside the craft and design work is a selection of tasty artisan foods to suited to BBQs, salads and sandwiches, a perfect way to liven up a lunchtime or evening meal.

The Workshop space at Synergy Studios hosts a summer programme of half and full day workshops covering a wide variety of craft and design techniques for all abilities. Workshops often include foraging trips out onto the beach or into the forests to gather materials and inspiration fr the workshop itself. All workshops result in a finished item to take away.

Synergy holds additional events over the summer including exhibitions, and Meet the Maker; a chance to meet some of the people making the work on sale and find out more about their story, their inspiration and what goes into making their products. There are also taster sessions for local foods, and an August fashion event.
