About the Craft Shop

The Craft Shop was established in October 1981 within the iconic Royal Exchange Theatre building in the lively St. Ann's Square, close to The Arndale Shopping Centre and public transport links. We are proud to be celebrating over 30 years of selling and promoting British handmade contemporary crafts.
