At Mark Lowe we are proud to be part of the GNCCFonline in May
This Spring sees the return of an online edition of Manchester’s award-winning Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair. GNCCFonline will be an opportunity to buy unique and exceptional contemporary craft direct from over 60 specially selected makers over the weekend of 21-22 May 2022.
Do you love contemporary craft but can’t wait till the live show in October? Do you have presents to buy or feel the need to treat yourself? The GNCCFonline: Spring Edition is for you. As ever, the exhibitors have been handpicked by a panel of craft experts to ensure the best in handmade design and beautiful craftsmanship – with jewellery, fashion accessories, prints, furniture, functional pieces and objects for the home. The show will feature makers exhibiting for the first time as well as some familiar faces, who will be showcasing and launching new collections.
Fair Director, Ann-Marie Franey said: “Buying presents from the GNCCFonline, or indeed treating yourself, means you are giving or receiving something truly special and unique. It shows you care for the people you’re buying for, whilst supporting the independent designer-makers you’re buying from.”
Angela Mann, one of the fairs co-founders added: “As well as lots of fabulous work to buy throughout the weekend, there will also be the opportunity to ‘visit’ makers virtually in their studios and watch them demonstrate their craft. Watch out for further details of this via the GNCCFonline website and via our social media platforms.”
GNCCFonline Spring Edition goes live 8am Saturday 21 May 2022 at the fair’s website www.greatnorthernevents.co.uk. Watch out for special fair offers and maker open studios over the weekend on social media – follow #GNCCF.
For an opportunity to buy work before the general public, anybody who signs up to the mailing list via the website will get an exclusive invite to the Preview evening on Friday 20 May 2022 from 6pm.
We are really happy that Mark Lowe is featured in the creative tourist – creativetourist.com. This follows on from our connection with Great Northern Events and advertises the Great Northern Contemporary Craft fair.
As featured in previous posts we are going to be part of the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair. Originally this was to be in early October from a venue in Manchester. Due to it having to be cancelled they managed to get a grant from the Crafts Council and were able to put together an online show – 25-31 July 2020. We will, no doubt be posting further promotion for this in the next week or so.

A few bits of news regarding Great Northern Events and the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair
Last Autumn we were involved in the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair in Manchester. This is run by Great Northern Event who also run a number of other contemporary craft fair as well as a few other events. Unfortunately this year events have been cancelled so, with help from the Crafts Council UK they have come up with a number of new initiatives.
Firstly they have compiled an online – Makers Profile. This covers most of the makers who have been involved in the events over the last few years and acts as a directory with links to the makers website.
The second will be an online market with more details for each maker enabling them to add individual pieces of work. Through links people will be able to buy work from the site. The GNCCF will be live between 25th – 31st of July. More details and promotion to follow.
GNCCFonline will feature the 160 designer-makers who had originally been selected to take part in our 2020 fairs. As ever, they have all been handpicked by a panel of craft experts to ensure the work on sale showcases the best in cutting edge design and beautiful craftsmanship across a wide range of craft disciplines.
For now here is the links to the Makers Profiles and, of course our own profile
