If you are looking to arrange a private studio visit, commission a bespoke piece or want to buy from one of our studio holders direct, visit our maker directory. Many of our studio holders also have their own online shops.
Commissioning a craft object or piece of jewellery, however large or small, is an exciting process. We have provided a step-by-step guide to help you make the most of it.
If you are looking for a special experience we can arrange private tours around Cockpit Arts’ studios for you to meet makers and talk to them about their business and creative process. We also offer the opportunity to tailor your tour to particular craft disciplines; to speak to one of our resident business incubation specialists; as well as creative away days to inspire your team with a unique hands-on experience, led by a selection of London’s top makers.
For extra special shopping events and offers as well as inside information about our makers, join as a Supporter of Cockpit Arts.
