When you buy a handcrafted gift, you’re buying so much more than a physical item. You are investing in the maker who created it and getting a little piece of all the time they’ve spent, not just making it, but learning their craft and developing their skills – their inspiration, imagination and passion.

The Northern Quarter’s Manchester Craft & Design Centre is home to some of our region’s most talented artists, designers and makers who create and sell their handmade work on site. In 19 independent workshops you’ll find textiles, jewellery, ceramics, prints, homewares and much more.

When you buy a handmade gift at Manchester Craft & Design Centre, the chances are you’ll be buying it directly from the person who made it. This means you can ask them to tweak the colour or size of something to make it even more perfect for the recipient. You might even want to commission a maker to create something totally bespoke.

Handmade gifts are so much more interesting than mass-produced high street gifts. Every item has it’s own story to tell, whether it’s about the maker, something that inspired them, or the materials it’s made from and where they came from. When you know the story behind an item you appreciate it more and when you give someone a gift with a story, they’re more likely to remember and treasure it.

Make Manchester Craft & Design Centre your first stop for Christmas shopping this year and buy perfect presents, direct from the maker.
