During these difficult times for small businesses, the team at the Craft Centre have worked tirelessly to support their makers by offering rent relief and business support to help see them through.
Manchester Craft and Design Centre is encouraging those shopping online to support local independents by buying handmade gifts online – a vital way you can show your support and keep local small businesses going.
There’s a fantastic range of gifts to spoil your loved ones with, or to order as a treat for yourself. From ceramic vases with smiley faces on that are perfect as plant holders, to bespoke jewellery, paintings, face masks and more, this talented bunch have the perfect handmade gifts for you to show some love to those you may not have seen for a while.
A new MCAD Craft at Home website has links to the makers’ online selection of products. You can shop via Instagram, their websites, or Facebook, or contact them directly if you have any questions or bespoke requests.
The Centre are also encouraging donations to help them continue to provide necessary relief for their creative community in the difficult months ahead, and you can show your support by donating at the MCAD Craft at Home site Show your Support page.
Manchester Craft and Design Centre hopes to welcome makers and visitors back later this year and will be sharing regular updates via their social media channels.
