By Hand: the shop

By Hand Gallery at Salford Museum

Customer notice

The By Hand Gallery will be closed from 1st November for a few weeks while we undertake some building work. In the meantime there will be some work still available to purchase through the ground floor shop area.

We're currently recruiting for NEW artists and designers to sell with us. Interested? Please email

Launched in October 2013, this permanant gallery space showcases handmade work by independent artists and craftspeople. This is an opportunity to buy that special gift, or to treat yourself.

Original art work, jewellery, limited edition prints, and locally made crafts are offered for sale at affordable prices. The gallery features work by designers from the local area, and further afield.

"This is a really good idea to support hand made crafts. An interesting range of work."
