If you want to see the best contemporary craft under one roof you must visit the annual GNCC Fair in Manchester, its an unmissable event. If you share a passion for craft + design and like to meet the makers + creators this wonderfully curated show certainly delivers. Provenance and origin is important in today’s world of the mass produced and being mindful when we invest in new items is how we need to shop. When i source new stock for the store i try to choose items that transcend fashion and seasonal looks. Buying stuff with substance that has been made with passion and soul will last you a lifetime. Below is a brief view of the selection of crafts that stood out to me, some will soon be joining us in the store.
Great photo here of a Laura Bird face pot sitting amongst his cacti buddies, he now resides in a Cheshire home office space, thanks to the happy customer who sent this in.
