The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair (GNCCF), winner of Best Small Event of the Year 2014 at Manchester Tourism Awards, opened its doors here at Old Granada Studios in Manchester. The craft fair offered visitors pop-up studios, craft workshops, an Artist in Residence and an Installation Artist making exclusive work.
The GNCCF once again bustled with creative talent, shoppers and collectors looking to buy or commission the beautiful and unique direct from over 175 of the UK’s most talented designer-makers. Selected by an independent panel for their excellence, the designer-makers showcased work from a variety of disciplines including interior and fashion textiles, glass, jewellery, ceramics, metalwork, furniture, print-making and more. Visitors learnt about the inspiration, materials, making process and stories behind the work.
