Making it in London
Cockpit Arts talk at New Designers
Business Design Centre, Islington, 27 June 2-2.45pm

With soaring housing prices and a squeeze on studio space, is it still realistic to run a craft business in London?  Annie Warburton, CEO Cockpit Arts and Cockpit makers Leah Jensen and Darren Appiagyei discuss life as a craftsperson in London and how to keep creativity thriving at the heart of the capital. The discussion follows on from our #MakingitinLondon event during London Craft Week which was recorded via Facebook Live, watch it here.
