Craft Says Something Pink


Craft says join us for a curated selling showcase of over 160 designer-makers and craft artists handpicked by a panel of renowned independent craft experts.

The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair returns for its 12th edition from 10-13 October 2019 to Upper Campfield Market Hall, Manchester.

The GNCCF is the last word in contemporary craft selling events in the north. Founded by passion-fuelled people with an obsessive love of craft, and a desire to create a nationally renowned event, it’s no coincidence that the GNCCF has become the must-attend event for exhibitors and buyers alike.

Expect a diverse range of work, talent and stories from leading designer-makers, including contemporary ceramicists, jewellers, textile designers, metalsmiths, glass makers, furniture-makers and printmakers. Click here to see our exciting exhibitor line up.

Join us.


The GNCCF is a not for profit event, supported by Arts Council England through the National Lottery Grant for the Arts.

GNCCF Live with The Oasis Centre Gorton

In 2018 we took GNCCF Live to the Oasis Centre in Gorton to enable people who don't normally engage in the arts, to take part in workshops with GNCCF exhibitors. We were awarded Arts Council funding to deliver a year's programme of workshops for clients of this wonderful charity. In 2019, we have secured further Arts Council funding to appoint an Artist in Residence who will work with the Oasis community to develop a permanent body of work for their new building.
