Cockpit Arts 30th Anniversary
We’ve been working from central London’s creative hub Cockpit Arts for the past 11 years (and counting!) - moving from a space in a studio shared with other makers and designers, to our very own studio and showroom along the way.
Cockpit Arts is an award winning social enterprise and the UK’s only business incubator for craftspeople. They support craft practitioners at the start of their careers, as well as those who are more established, to grow and build successful and thriving businesses. They work with a wide range of talented individuals, including master craftspeople, artist-makers, batch producers and more scalable businesses.
This year sees Cockpit Arts celebrating a milestone - its 30th Anniversary. Alongside the Summer Open Studios taking place from 2nd - 5th June, they are hosting a series of craft-oriented events throughout the year which you can find out about directly from their website.
We love working in such a thriving creative environment and look forward to celebrating with Cockpit Arts and our supporters at the Open Studios in the coming weeks.
Find out about the trailblazing nature of Cockpit Arts’ work in their Makers’ Stories and the career journeys that exist for craft makers working in Britain today through their new short film:
