Tours for Schools

Cockpit Arts is offering tours of its craft business incubator centres to London based non-selective state secondary schools, free of charge until July 2019, thanks to the generous support of The John S Cohen Foundation. During these ‘behind-the-scene’ tours, teachers and pupils will have the opportunity to meet a selection of independent craftspeople in their working environment; see how they work, view their creations, discuss the creative processes involved in their production and hear about their career trajectories as well as their future aspirations.

“It was so exciting for students to meet and talk to designers about their life and work and experience of the industry. Also it was crucial for them to know about Cockpit Arts for their ongoing studies in London.”  – Julia Robson, Lecturer in Fashion, Regent’s University

If your school doesn’t qualify for a free tour, we would still love to welcome your group, please get in touch to check availability and discuss our charges.
