An exhibition of craft and design to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the original publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.


The magical story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has fired the imagination of children – and adults – for a century and a half. 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of its original publication and to celebrate, Manchester Craft & Design Centre has invited Mancheser Jewellers Network to take over their exhibition space this winter.

Exploring Wonderland is a showcase of work inspired by the imagination of Lewis Carroll and featuring 28 makers, including jewellers, glassmakers, printmakers, paper artists, furniture makers, ceramicists and more.

Alice in Wonderland remains as enchanting as ever and Exploring Wonderland will enchant you all over again.
