Future Makers: New Graduate Artists

The future stars of craft and design

Here at Manchester Craft & Design Centre, we’re always looking out for the future stars of craft and design.

Our resident makers lead this celebration of talent by showcasing and selling the work of new graduate artists from a variety of disciplines in their studios each year. Look out for the Future Makers signs in studio windows to discover the newest craft and design talent.

Future Makers will launch alongside Modern Twist with a free launch event on Thursday 16th February. Find out more here…
