An unforgettable place to make, see and buy contemporary craft and design…

A hidden gem at the heart of Manchester’s creative Northern Quarter, Manchester Craft & Design Centre is home to 18 studios housing 30+ designer-makers who design, create and make a variety of handmade work, 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 which are open to the public six days a week*

Alongside this MCDC hosts an innovative and exciting exhibitions and events programme, showcasing the best of contemporary craft and design from both established and emerging talent. And our diverse workshops are a great way for both professionals and amateurs alike to get ‘hands-on’ and develop and enhance their skills.
