Handmade Charity Shopping

We offer both shopping for Arcware in our Online Shop (which includes delivery or Click & Collect!) AND a retail selection in the centre.

Every purchase is a contribution to help us continue our work unlocking creativity and transforming the lives of vulnerable adults and young people across Greater Manchester.


Makers Mini Market

Our Handmade at Hat Works Artist’s Table is a selection of unique and thougtful handmade artwork and pieces by Arc’s associate artists from around the NW. Buying from these fabulous local makers ensures a quality and unique gift for yourself or a loved one, plus a portion of the sales supports our work and might make them do a little dance (dancing not guaranteed)!
See visitor information here.
This is a free drop-in event with no pre-booking or payment required. We’re fortunate to be able to make our programmes happen thanks to hours of hard work by volunteer team each year. To support the charity we suggest a donation of £3pp from those who can afford it. This can be made online or c/card on the day.
To see how your donation helps to support vulnerable people and allows us to continue to run events like this, please visit about us.

The cafe will be open serving festive special board items, plus hot drinks including speciality coffee, tea hot choc, and snacks including Lunch Bags, soup, toasties and scones!
