Are you a maker interested in applying for a studio at Cockpit Arts?
On 11 September Cockpit Arts is holding its fourth informal evening – A Taste of Cockpit Arts – for makers interested in applying for a place at its studios in central and south London.
If you’re looking to grow your business and creative practice, as artist-maker or batch producer, come along and find out more. Whether you’ve just launched your business or you’re more established, having a studio at Cockpit Arts with the support provided by our unique Business Incubator model can help you to realise your creative and business goals and achieve greater success.
During the evening you’ll have the chance to see inside the studios and meet some of the Cockpit Arts team and talented makers. You’ll find out about the many benefits of being part of Cockpit Arts’ unique creative business incubator and have the opportunity to ask questions about the application process.
The event is free but booking is essential.

In addition, you can find out more about applying for a place on Cockpit’s London Creative Network Programme.
The London Creative Network Programme at Cockpit Arts is a professional development programme designed to help makers to enhance their ability to advance their business – whether through new products and services, new ways of doing things, or both. It’s a unique opportunity for London-based makers, working from studios both inside and outside of Cockpit Arts, to receive valuable professional development from the Cockpit Arts team. The next call for applications for London Creative Network goes live in March 2018 and this is a chance to find out more in advance.
London Creative Network is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
What the makers have said about A Taste of Cockpit Arts…
“I found the opportunity to visit and chat to existing Cockpit makers extremely beneficial. It was also very eye opening and reassuring to get information from the supportive staff at Cockpit face to face. Speaking to all these people made me realise the huge benefits to my business that Cockpit Arts could provide. In turn it also helped me learn the best way I could present my business when applying for a studio.”
Laura Nygou, jeweller who joined Cockpit Arts Holborn in 2017
“A Taste of Cockpit Arts was a really helpful event to attend, it gave me a lot of information about Cockpit as a studio and social enterprise. This event really helped me start the application process for the Radcliffe Craft Development Award. I was able to find out the details of upcoming deadlines for the awards available and what in particular Cockpit looks for.”
Hannah Refaat, Awardee of the Cockpit Arts / Radcliffe Craft Development Award 2018
“Visiting the studios helped me to understand first hand what’s on offer at Cockpit Arts for makers. I’d been thinking about applying to Cockpit for a while and the advice given by the Cockpit Arts team at the event helped clarified how to approach the application form. During the event, I spoke to a number of makers based at the studios who are further into their careers and I found this really useful.”
