Small Business Saturday 2015
Manchester Craft & Design Centre is a not-for-profit social enterprise and the independent incubator venue for craft/design businesses in the North West. We support over 30 creative enterprises each year with developing successful and influential businesses.
This Small Business Saturday we’re encouraging you to spend the first shopping Saturday in December supporting small, independent businesses like those based here at MCDC.
Browse our 18 studio shops for original, handmade Christmas gifts that have been created right here by some of the most talented designer-makers in the region.
Drop into our project space – space2 – where we’ll be hosting Hey Clay! A national celebration of clay organised by the Crafts Council and BBC Get Creative to give everyone the chance to unleash their inner potter! Try your hand at rolling, printing, cutting, throwing, shaping and more – all for FREE! Find out more here
Stick around for the afternoon when we’ll have live music. And why not relax in Oak Street Cafe Bar and enjoy a hot spiced cider and festive tart!
In town all day? We’ve got work by a selection of makers for sale at the GRUB Christmas Food Fair in Sadler’s Yard, 12-8pm. Find out more here
