Volunteer & Support

Manchester Craft and Design has been home to some of the North West’s most talented makers for nearly 40 years. We are committed to developing talent and making craft accessible to all.

Kate Day Fund

This fund will be a legacy of Kate's work and passion.

We aim to raise £40,000 in recognition of Kate Day and her ambitions for the craft sector in the North West. We propose that together, we build a new fund to enhance opportunities for emerging makers from diverse backgrounds, giving vital support to the development of craft in the region.
