Winner of our Handmade Hamper!

This Christmas we launched a campaign to give everyone spending £10 or more at Manchester Craft & Design Centre the chance to win an incredible handmade hamper, full of goodies from our studios worth £400! The lucky winner was drawn earlier this month and we were excited to hand the hamper over to a very happy Frankie Tonge!

Frankie said, “I’m really thankful to everybody that very generously donated such beautiful things!”

Frankie was picked out of a big box of over 1,000 entries! We’d like to thank everyone who entered. Whether you bought handmade here this Christmas or were given one of our ‘tear and share’ slips by a friend and came down to hand in your entry, your support of local independent business is vital to the Centre, the Northern Quarter and our amazingly creative, industrious city!
