Team Building Away-Days

Inspire creativity in your team

Help to support our work by coming to Manchester Craft & Design Centre for unique team building awaydays, or just a reward for hardworking colleagues…

Manchester Craft & Design Centre is an unforgettable to experience the best of contemporary craft and design in the North West.

Workshops are expertly led by our Resident Makers in a dedicated workshop space at the heart of our creative and historic building. Catering is provided by our onsite independent café, Oak Street Café Bar, who can build a menu to your requirements.

Our experienced workshop leaders are positive, informal and engaging, guiding participants through the full creative process – from designing to making a unique craft object. Participants can make a piece to take home, create something new for the office, or just get stuck in and have a go

What can you expect?

Half day sessions

Book a half day workshop with us and enjoy complimentary usage of our workshop room and meeting facilities for the rest of the day – whether that’s to use for business purposes or to simply sit back, take in our creative surroundings and admire the results of your morning’s making.

Full day sessions

In spending the full day with a maker, participants can try their hand at some competitive crafting – working in teams or individually, learning new skills and trying something they’ve not done before.

Ideal for:

Groups of between 8 and 14 people.


From £85 per person (minimum booking of 8 people, tailored quotes available on request).

Workshops can be lead by ceramicists, pewtersmiths, jewellers, textile artists and more – we are home to over 30 creative businesses so will tailor the day to your ideas. Browsing our eighteen independent studios and current exhibition is an integral part of the experience, so inspiration will definitely not be in short supply!
