Drop-in to Special Collections for an opportunity to see and handle a wide range of decorative ceramics, metalware, books, glass and textiles from our Arts and Crafts Collection.
The collection dates back to the end of the nineteenth century when an Arts and Crafts Museum was opened at the Municipal School of Art (now Manchester School of Art).
To coincide with the 120th anniversary of the opening of the museum, and the opening of the Edward Burne Jones exhibition at Tate Britain, we’re inviting you to come and see a selection of some of the nearly 200 items in the Arts and Crafts Collection by well known makers including William Morris, W. A. S. Benson, James Powell & Sons, William De Morgan, C. F. A. Voysey, C. R. Ashbee, L. C. Tiffany, Loetz and Walter Crane.
