About

We are….

Professional. Confident. Generous. Inspiring. Storytellers. Talent Spotters. 

In the heart of Manchester’s creative Northern Quarter, Manchester Craft & Design Centre is home to 30 resident artists & makers who design, create and make a variety of handmade products, from textiles and ceramics to pewter and paint, all of which can be bought on-site from the maker themselves in their independent and unique studios six days a week.

Alongside this MCDC hosts an innovative and exciting exhibition and events programme, showcasing the best of contemporary craft and design from both established and emerging talent. Our diverse workshops are a great way for both professionals and amateurs alike to get ‘hands-on’ and develop and enhance their skills, from our ‘Make with Makers’ day sessions to our ‘Creative Business Development’ workshops.
