Manchester Craft and Design Centre

Are you a maker looking for studio & retail space?

We have currently filled all of our studio spaces.

But you can still work with our makers, sharing a studio or helping out in exchange for a space to sell your work. Our makers are a friendly bunch and you will learn lots about being a full time maker in one of our studios.

To apply: Send us your CV,  six images of your work and a description of the days you would be able to cover to [email protected]

Please note: Due to the high volume of ceramicists and jewellers currently working in the Centre, we are not taking applications from makers working in these disciplines at this time. Please sign up for our Maker Network newsletter for updates.

If you have further questions prior to application, please get in touch at [email protected]

Emerging Makers and Graduates

Are you a highly skilled maker lacking business experience? Or a new graduate thinking about career options?

Check out how we support emerging makers.

We know that covering one of our maker studios for six days a week can be a little daunting. As a sharer you can work with our studio holders in a partnership that works for everyone. All our sharing works differently based on the needs of makers. Fill in our contact form below to learn more.
