The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair returns to Spinningfields in Manchester on 20th - 23rd October 2011.

The event, which attracted over 6000 visitors in 2010, is back for its 4th year providing cutting edge contemporary craft to buy from over 140 selected designer-makers in ceramics, glass, jewellery, interior and fashion textiles, wood, silver and more. Visitors can meet the makers in a relaxed yet stimulating atmosphere, chat to them about their work and buy or commission pieces directly from them.










For regular visitors to the show there will be some familiar faces amongst this year’s makers, but each year the organisers aim to provide you with something fresh and interesting. The best emerging talent from this year’s creative degree shows has once again been selected by Curator Kelda Savage, forming the Great Northern Graduate section of the show.










With almost fifty high calibre contemporary jewellers showing at the fair this year, working in a wide range of styles and media, the GNCCF has grown to become a must-see event for jewellery enthusiasts.
