Manchester Art Gallery > Collections

Mary Greg collected everyday domestic objects during the late 1800s and early 1900s. She was particularly interested in pre-industrial handmade objects and wanted to preserve examples of traditional artisan skills.

This online collection of selections from the Mary Greg Archive at the Manchester Art Gallery will grow over time. It's purpose is to illuminate how these archived collections can inspired and inform creative practice.
