An online emporium of gifts and collectibles from London’s top makers.

Going live online Thursday 26 November  – www.cockpitarts.com

For the very first time in 30 years our famed Winter Open Studios are taking a different form and yes, like many others we’re going digital this year.

Join our virtual 2020 event this winter where we introduce fresh new talent just arrived at Cockpit – and where our 150 makers will be presenting exclusive items and experiences available nowhere else.

We’ll be recreating Cockpit’s special festive atmosphere online – you’ll virtually be able to smell the mulled wine!

Where, you ask?
Right here!

Cockpit has always been a destination to discover fresh talent on the cusp of career success – and our new online emporium features virtuoso makers across the spectrum of craft disciplines: from contemporary ceramics to fine jewellery, from hand-printed cards to handwoven textiles, and from bespoke leather goods to unique kitchen knives. There are a host of more unusual disciplines, too, including millinery, mosaic and Moroccan Zouaq painting.

Items have been selected to suit all budgets, from splash-out collectible artworks to readily affordable stocking fillers, smashing any preconception that high-end craft is just for those with deep pockets. Pieces on offer will include a number of ‘studio exclusives’ – items created especially for the event and unavailable anywhere else.

“Cockpit is one of a kind – and our makers are too. Our new platform brings together in one place Cockpit’s gifted community of makers and the stunning works they create. With an immense variety of items available – in price range, product type and craft discipline – its appeal lies in the ability to seek out one-offs found nowhere else. It’s the place to come for gifts with meaning and soul.”
Annie Warburton, CEO, Cockpit
