Upland is delighted to have a stand at the Manchester fair where we will be showcasing a range of high-quality craft by our members.

Now in its 12th year, the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair is the North’s largest and most established annual celebration of contemporary craft. Set in a Grade 2 Victorian market building in the heart of Manchester on Deansgate, this award-winning event hosts over 160 of the UK’s finest designer makers and craft artists. All exhibitors taking part have been specially selected for their excellence, with jewellery, interior and fashion textiles, ceramics, prints, glass, furniture and more on show.

Meet our makers and discover the inspiration and stories behind their work. The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair is an opportunity to buy direct from the artists, or to commission your own unique, hand-made piece.
