EXHIBITION : September 8, 2016 — October 30, 2016.
Forty-nine Manchester-based artists
One iconic HAND CRAFTED mural
Ideas travel, and HAND.01, a packable, refillable, paper-topped modular table from emergent British design studio HAND and paper pioneers G.F Smith, has been designed to ensure that inspiration is captured wherever it strikes.
We’ve joined forces with HAND Studio to capture the creativity of our Resident Makers and other creatives from across Manchester, and to celebrate craft, collaboration and the heritage of Manchester Craft & Design Centre.
A total of 49 artists have uses HAND.01 to create 49 customised pieces of work which, when collated, will form a large mural representing an iconic section of MCDC. Watch the short film below to learn about the inspiration behind the HAND CRAFT mural and see our resident makers bringing it to life.
