Maker Portraits by Alun Callender

A photographic exhibition of our makers – past and present – will be on display at both sites during our Summer Open Studios. These specially-commissioned portraits illustrate the diversity of makers, success stories, demonstrating the trailblazing nature of Cockpit Arts’ work and the career journeys that exist for craft makers working in Britain today.

The Holborn Magazine pop-up

The Holborn Magazine celebrates what they call a ‘well made life’, searching out those who make and create with a passion and a purpose.

We’re delighted to have The Holborn Magazine with us during both our Holborn and Deptford Open Studios. Pick up a copy of their latest issue (The Scotland Issue), purchase back issues or sign up for a subscription.
