Manchester Craft and Design Centre

An unforgettable place to make, see and buy contemporary craft and design.

A hidden gem at the heart of Manchester's creative Northern Quarter, Manchester Craft & Design Centre is home to 18 studios housing 30+ designer-makers who design, create and make a variety of handmade work, from textiles and ceramics to pewter and paint, all of which can be bought on-site from the maker themselves in their independent and unique studios seven days a week.

Alongside this MCDC hosts an innovative and exciting exhibition and events programme, showcasing the best of contemporary craft and design from both established and emerging talent.

Opening times:
Monday - Saturday 10am - 5.30pm
Sunday 11am - 5pm

As their studios are run by hard working sole traders, not all are able to open on Sundays. Check website for details.
