Manchester Craft & Design Centre

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.

We are:  Professional, Confident, Generous, Inspiring, Storytellers, Talent Spotters and the 2011 & 2013 winner of a Manchester Tourism Award for ‘Best Independent Tourism Retailer’

We close for Christmas at 3pm on Christmas Eve and open again on Saturday 3 January 2015.
