Hands On is an exhibition of work by three Manchester makers who are part of our inaugural bursary holder project.
Over the last four months, we’ve worked with three talented makers, Bhaggie Patel, EvaD Ould-Okojie and Simon Denton to develop their creative practice and creative businesses. The three artists, specialising in ceramics, textiles and wood have worked with our team at Manchester Craft and Design Centre as well as experts across the field to develop their creative brands, present their practice and develop new techniques.
Throughout the project, the makers have developed experimental works and created innovative pieces that we’re excited to show at Manchester Craft and Design Centre. Our 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.
