What’s on in 2017


Our 2017 exhibition programme is shaping up nicely with four new shows planned for the coming year, starting with our 2016 MMU Graduate Award winner Joshua Till. In his first ever solo exhibition, Joshua puts a Modern Twist on a traditional craft with his contemporary steam bent wooden furniture. Modern Twist launches on February 16th and runs until May 21st.

Talks & Tours

Our Craft Unravelled series of talks and tours take place on the last Tuesday of every month at 1:30pm. Take a tour of our former fishmarket building and learn some interesting facts about our history. Join our curator for a tour of our current exhibition and hear about the artists and the inspirations behind their work. Or go behind the scenes in one of studios, meet a resident maker and find out what it’s like to have a studio here at MCDC. Check out the 2017 schedule here…
