There’s a new Modern art venue in Manchester for our guest to enjoy. If your planning a visit to Manchester the Cornerstones Guest House is in an ideal location. South of the city, just 12 minutes from the centre and just 10 minutes to the old market town of Altrincham where more than 200 people attended the grand opening of a new Manchester art facility ‘Local Creation‘.
70-72 George Street, Altrincham
Local Creation is the brainchild of father-of-one John Wonnacott who gave up his white collar job to pursue his dream of running a centre which brings craftspeople together to work, show and sell their work.
A Weekend Adventure
John’s local Creation business idea will provide space for local artists (including potters, jewelers, painters and fashion designers) which they can use to run classes, have workspace or have a gallery for retail. The business will also create a local artistic community and act as a springboard for a local arts festival.
The building – on Central Way behind the former Bricklayers pub – is now open to the public on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. As an added bonus it’s also next door to Altrincham market which is surrounded by foodie light bite shops, restaurants and bars
John has created a destination venue which is adding to the Altrincham draw, breathing new life into an already vibrant area and flying the flag for Modern Art and Craft in Manchester.
