Now in its 14th year, GNCCF is the last word in contemporary craft selling events in the north. Founded by passion-fuelled people with an obsessive love of craft and a desire to create a nationally renowned event, it’s no coincidence that the GNCCF has become the must-attend event for exhibitors and buyers alike.

Cinda Clark

From emerging graduates to renowned established maker, expect a diverse range of talents and stories from a wide range of craftspeople, including contemporary ceramicists, jewellers, textile designers, metalsmiths, glass makers, furniture-makers and printmakers. The GNCCF is, undoubtedly, an inspiring and unique shopping experience to buy directly from the hands of the makers but also commission something bespoke from them too. Start saving!

Claire Hillerby

A great day out, the GNCCF is an opportunity to meet some of the UK’s finest makers, chat to them about their work, see them demonstrating and take home something you will love.
