Manchester Art and Design center is a gorgeous building tucked just off the Thomas Street in Manchester Northern Quarter. Home to many many of Manchester's most sucessful Etsy sellers it's full of open studio shops set over two levels all winding around the sun drenched middle section which houses a independent cafe. Well worth a visit to be inspired or just for a decent cup of tea.
Well we couldn't not pin ourselves! Etsy Manchester is a forum for all sellers on Etsy who live in the greater manchester area but we want it to be more than that, we would love to become a creative hub filled with people who are passional about hand made items. #etsymanchester
Ministry of Craft: A fantastic and far reaching group which runs tutorials and classes in Fred Aldous. Book early because they fill up fast although they are slightly pricier than some (average about £50) I've heard rave reviews. They also post tutorials regularly on their blog.
