Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair 2011

Well, hello – do you know what? If you head to Spinningfields this weekend, you’re in a for a real treat. If you love all things beautiful, sparkly, delicate, intricate, elegant, unique and downright gorgeous, you’re not going to know which way to turn…

The fourth annual Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair has hit town again, and this year it’s bigger, better and bolder. Located now in Quay House, Quay Street – just a stone’s throw from Spinningfields – it’s a treasure trove of very big proportions. The first thing you see on arriving at the venue – especially if you go when it’s just starting to get dark for maximum effect – is the amazing window display by Ferrious, who are supporting this year’s Great Northern Graduate Scheme. Interspersed amongst the graduates’ exhibitions are some very stunning lights by designer Tom Dixon, a staple of the Ferrious showroom on Whitworth Street –

The exhibition covers two full floors and at least four rooms, so we’d suggest setting aside a little bit of time to get around it all. Take your money/plastic too. With Xmas fast approaching, you’ll be hard pressed to find more affordable and more unique presents. Another great opportunity to support independent creatives…
