Manchester Craft & Design Centre, 17 Oak St, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 5JD – Visit Now

Looking for a more unique set of Christmas presents this year? Keen to avoid the misery of heaving high-streets during retail’s busiest season? Manchester Craft & Design Centre is hands down the most reliable one-stop-shop for unique, but not over-priced, gifts in the city. Welcome to the mecca of all things beautiful, handmade and one-of-a-kind.

Housed in a former Victorian fish and poultry market in the heart of the Northern Quarter, MCDC has been going strong for over 30 years, providing a home to some of the region’s most talented independent artists, designers and makers, selling textiles, jewellery, ceramics, prints, fine art, sculpture and more.

More than just a shopping experience however, a visit to MCDC is also an opportunity to browse the units of this beautiful building and enter into conversation with the various resident artists and makers at work. While for those looking to get creative themselves, a busy programme of exhibitions, events and workshops will provide all the inspiration and guidance you could possibly need.

Plan your visit to coincide with lunch at the dedicatedly fresh and inventive Oak Street Café on the ground floor, where the artistry continues.
