About Us

Ministry of Craft has been teaching Manchester to sew and craft since 2008.

With locations in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, Chorlton and Eccles, the Ministry tutors teach a huge variety of fun, friendly and sociable workshops for all tastes and abilities.

From Sewing to Screen Printing our workshops are comprehensive, affordable and most importantly FUN!

Ministry of Craft tutors are all highly skilled, patient and down to earth and our customers leave with bags of skills as well as amazing handmade products to show off to their friends.

Ministry of Craft has appeared on national TV and worked in partnership with a number of major brands such as Kirstie Allsopp's Hand Made Festival, Wayne Hemingway’s Vintage Festival and the Women’s Institute, as well as Manchester institutions such as the Craft & Design Centre, BBC Radio Manchester and Home Is In The North.
