Show your Support

Manchester Craft and Design Centre has been at the heart of the North West’s independent community of makers since 1982. As a charity and home to many small businesses, both the centre and our makers rely on your support to carry on making and to provide affordable studio space and a vibrant creative community in Manchester’s city centre.

These last few months have been challenging times for the Centre and for our community of makers. Our priority has been to support the small businesses that call us home by offering business support and rent relief to help them through.

We hope to be able to welcome visitors back later this year and we will keep you posted about developments. Like many businesses, we will have to adapt what we do, but, rest assured, the health and safety of our makers and visitors will always be our top priority.

In the meantime, if you are able to show your support in any of the following ways, it would mean a lot to us:

Shop Online:

Show your support for our makers by shopping with them online – you’ll find links to their work on MCAD Craft at Home Resident Makers page.
