An exhibition showcasing work from people in recovery from substance use will explore this transformative process through creative acts of renewal and self-repair.

The pop-up show, hosted at Manchester Craft and Design centre, features pieces from participants of The Repair Centre, which connects a group of people in recovery with cultural venues, creative professionals and artists from Greater Manchester.

Audiences are invited to learn more about the creative mending project inspired by Kintsugi—an ancient form of Japanese ceramic repair. The project has worked across materials, including ceramics, textiles, wood and paper. 

Kintsugi philosophy evidences that something new, useful, and more interesting can come out of damage, loss and change. The Repair Centre aims to showcase this sentiment not always acknowledged by society.

The exhibition also offers the chance to meet members of the project who will be making in the space, and adding new pieces to the exhibition over the two-day event.

Entry is free and no booking is required, just drop by and be inspired by the incredible art on show.

Tue 31 May - Wed 1 Jun, 10am-3pm, Manchester Craft and Design Centre,
