Hands On Exhibition - Celebrating Craft in the North-West

We are so pleased to announce that Bhaggie has been selected to participate in the Hands On Exhibition, showcasing work by three North-West based makers who are part of the Manchester Craft and Design Centre's inaugural bursary holder project.

Over the last four months, Bhaggie has worked with two other talented makers, EvaD Ould-Okojie and Simon Denton to develop her creative practices and businesses.

Working with our team at Manchester Craft and Design Centre as well as experts across the field to develop our creative brands, present our practices and develop new techniques. Throughout the project, Bhaggie has developed experimental works and created innovative pieces that we’re so excited to exhibit at Manchester Craft and Design Centre in the city's Northern Quarter.

The Hands On bursary was developed in recognition of the need for Manchester Craft and Design Centre to work towards greater inclusivity, create access to opportunities for more makers in Manchester and grow our community.

The exhibition will run from Saturday 11th September until Saturday 13th November and is free to visit.

Celebrating Craft in the North West is part of Make! Craft! Live! – the Craft Council’s nationwide celebration marking its 50th anniversary year. Galleries, festivals and museums across the region, including Manchester Craft and Design Centre, will showcase events and displays to celebrate the sheer brilliance of craft and making.
