A hidden gem at the heart of the Manchester’s creative Northern Quarter, in a former Victorian fishmarket building, Manchester Craft & Design Centre is an unforgettable place to experience contemporary craft & design in the North West.

In our 18 studios you can expect to meet some of the region’s most talented artists, designers and makers and see them at work creating textiles, jewellery, ceramics, prints, fine art, sculpture and more. Discover their stories, hear about their materials and processes, or learn a new skill yourself by taking part in a workshop.

And don’t miss our exciting programme of free contemporary craft exhibitions and events and our on-site café bar which serves delicious homemade fare.
