You don't have to be glued to the news to know that London is one of the most expensive cities in the world to live in – covering living costs is one thing, let alone studio rents, making establishments like Cockpit Arts completely invaluable.
As the UK’s only business incubator for craftspeople it provides affordable studio spaces for up to 170 small businesses.
"We 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 both in the UK and internationally."
Not only are their Open Studios events an opportunity for others to see talented designers and makers at work but they are also an essential fund raising tool as proceeds go towards supporting extraordinary craftspeople making work in the UK. Reg. charity no. 1029643.
Cockpits Arts is based over two sites:
HOLBORN · 2 – 5 June
DEPTFORD · 10 – 12 Junewww.cockpitarts.com
