The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair Fair returns to Spinningfields in Manchester from 4 to 7 October, showcasing the latest work by some of the UK’s most exciting designer-makers.

Voted Small Tourism Event of the Year at the 2011 Manchester Tourism Awards, the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair presents a unique opportunity to buy direct from 150 selected makers in textiles, wood and furniture, lighting, mixed media, metal, jewellery, glass, ceramics, basketry and paper.
