The Gifts of the Departed @ Manchester Craft & Design Centre

Why not enjoy a little culture this weekend at the Manchester Craft & Design Centre? Opening tomorrow and running until March 1st 2014, The Gifts of the Departed is a new-to-Manchester exhibition by UK based interdisciplinary artist Alinah Azadeh which focuses on themes of separation, loss and longing.

By using pieces belonging to her dead mother, the artist has injected an incredible amount of emotion into the collection, creating a beautiful and thought-provoking tribute to heartache.


The exhibition launch takes place tomorrow between 1-5pm and includes a talk from the artist at 3pm, a drinks reception, and music from the Manchester String Quartet.  We’ll be there and can’t wait to see the collection in full and enjoy everything else that the Craft & Design Centre has to offer including a drink in the gorgeous Oak Street Cafe Bar. Awarded “Best Independent Tourism Retailer” at the Manchester Tourism Awards earlier this month, the Craft & Design Centre is a destination in itself and exploring it is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Avoid the Northern Quarters notoriously complicated one way system and extortionate parking by arriving in style in a Mantax cab. Pre-book using our iPhone & Android app and enter code PROMO5 to get £5 off your first journey.
