Photo: Manchester Craft Mafia Exhibition in The Study

Manchester Museum have revamped their entire top floor and created a fantastic and innovative new research and learning area called The Study. It has several different areas including areas to examine items from their collection, meeting spaces, a new gallery space (fantastic photos of the Congo at the moment) and even an aquaponics greenhouse. It also has free Wifi.

Manchester Craft Mafia were invited to collaborate with the Museum on the development of the ‘Make’ area. Members have created simple craft worksheets for visitors to follow while in the area with materials supplied plus will be running some workshops in the space. We were also commissioned to each create a piece of work inspired by the museum’s collection. These are displayed in the balcony cabinets along the “Make’ area. An insight into each artists design, development and making process is displayed with each item. Do visit this wonderful new facility and check out our exhibition. I am proud to be included in this collection of high quality craft pieces.
