21st to 24th October 2010
Now in its third year, the contemporary craft buying event will feature over 150 designer-makers in ceramics, jewellery, textiles, glass, furniture, wood, metal, paper and more.. Visitors can spend the day in a relaxed yet stimulating atmosphere, chat to the makers and find out the story behind the work.
Set in a pavilion in the Spinningfields district of Manchester, in the heart of the city centre, the event was established to introduce contemporary craft to a Northern audience. The event has gone from strength to strength and 6,400 people visited the show in 2009.
Building on the success of previous years, Angela Mann and Ann-Marie Franey, the organizers have added some exciting new features to this years’ show in the form of:
‘Great Northern Graduates’: an area of the show which showcases the best from this year’s creative degree courses. The place in the North to see ‘the ones to watch’
and jewellery-making workshops with Magpie Arts.
