CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

 Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair, Victoria Baths Manchester 17-20 October 2024

 GNCCFonline Christmas: 7-8 December 2024

Now in its 17th year, the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair (GNCCF) is nationally renowned and is the place in the North of England to buy and commission exceptional handmade work directly from a selected line-up of professional designer-makers. Along with its Christmas pop-up GNCCFonline, we offer makers an unrivaled opportunity to put their work in front of an eager and savvy audience in a way that suits them and their buyers best.

GNCCF returns to the stunning Victoria Baths in Manchester, opening with a Private View on the evening of Thursday 17 October, and then to the general public from Friday 18 October to Sunday 20 October.

GNCCF is complimented by GNCCFonline Christmas edition in December which provides an affordable and accessible way to present and market your work under the respected GNCCF brand. It’s also attractive to GNCCF exhibitors as a reminder to visitors.

Applications are now invited from new and established designer-makers and recent graduates, working to the highest standards in ceramics, glass, jewellery, metal, leather, wood, interior textiles, fashion design & accessories, mixed media, basket-making, product design, furniture, print-making and more. 

For all our fairs, we welcome applications from diverse and talented makers from the UK and abroad, whatever their background or professional qualifications; we encourage applicants from people who represent marginalised or under-represented groups in craft, including, but not limited to, those who are Black, Asian and minority ethnic, neurodivergent, D/deaf, LGBTQ+ and working class. We're also keen to attract makers whose contact address puts them in one of Arts Council England's Levelling Up For Culture Places.

For GNCCF 2024, we're delighted to partner with the Radcliffe Trust to offer 10 bursaries of £250 to new makers and 2 bursaries of £250 to newcomers, whose contact address puts them in one of Arts Council England's Levelling Up For Culture Places.

Interested makers can apply by completing the online application form available on our website  

The application portal opens 1st February and closes 29th February 2024.
