A centre for traditional and contemporary craft and design would be established in the city. There would be exhibitions, events and education programmes. The centre would display local designers, artists and craft producers across a variety of disciplines such as furniture, pottery, clothing, metalwork, weaving, and woodturning. Locally produced work would be available to be purchased at the centre. There would be an emphasis on the use of local materials. There would be temporary workshop spaces to allow the public view work being created.
