Manchester Craft: Illustrated & Unplugged
It’s back. This October, Manchester’s celebration of art and culture returns to the city for its fourth year. As ever, it offers a weekend-long snapshot of the best the city has to offer, from Jeremy Deller at Manchester Art Gallery and Steve McQueen at IWM North to an Un-convention along the Corridor. Vogue comes to town, Cornerhouse does Double Indemnity, and Manchester District Music Archive is at The Lowry.
In between are secret gigs, pop-up ‘zines, subcultural football, and A Highland Romance. It’s a weekend of what we do best in Manchester: the informed, the strange, the cultured and the unforgettable.
Manchester Craft & Design Centre is delighted to be part of the annual creative celebration that is Manchester Weekender 2013. Manchester Weekender showcases the best of Manchester’s art and culture, its museums, galleries, festivals and one-off events.
As part of this years programme MCDC introduces a four-day illustration exhibition along with a weekend of fantastic acoustic music, design, and all round crafty goodness, hosted in one of the most unique buildings in the city.
For this year’s Manchester Weekender, Manchester Craft & Design Centre will present an illustration exhibition, shown alongside our exhibition ‘Forming Words’ (13/07/13 – 09/11/13) which explores how contemporary craft and design can be inspired by text.
