A select group of our previous makers are back with us for Open Studios. Look out for the Cockpit Arts Alumni stickers throughout the studios.
Makers exhibiting are:
Aline Johnson, Amanda Doughty, Beatrice Larkin, Cassandra Smith, Charlene Grandison, Clarissa Hulse, Katherine Pogson, Liz Emtage, Lucy Miller, Michelle Fernandez and Noon Mitchelhill (pictured above)
During both Open Studios there will be curated displays selected by Grant Gibson, Editor of Crafts Magazine.
“What struck me as I working my way through the portfolio of all the Cockpit makers was the weight of talent and the eclectic nature of the work that comes out of the two buildings. My final selection has attempted to capture that, running the gamut from experimental to the functional. But what every piece has in common, of course, is that they’re beautifully made.”
Crafts magazine will have a pop-up shop at our Holborn Open Studios selling current and back issues of the magazine.
