Once a place of hard physical graft, the Northern Quarter is now Manchester’s boho district for the hip & happening, where mill workers, weavers & market traders have been replaced by artists, designers, & independent boutiques. On this night the areas arts venues & galleries, shops & restaurants, pubs & bars will be mixing it up in one big cultural mash-up.’ – Creative Tourist

new hobby

without comments

i’d really rather show than tell so recently whilst having a conversation with our friend, hannah raeside at manchester craft & design centre, i was intrigued when she started telling me about instagram.

realising my late arrival at this particular party i decided better late than never & yet another techno hobby joins the list of my things to do. it’s rather like a modern twist on that traditional hobby – stamp collecting!

i do like the neat & organised symmetry of it all, so here it is, please, have a look if you like!
