cockpit is a centre for excellence in craft.

Cockpit bridges the gap between talent and opportunity, by providing affordable studio space and in-house business support to talented makers. We are an award-winning social enterprise, home to 160 independent creative businesses in London. We hold Open Studios twice a year in June and November, which are an opportunity to see behind the scenes and meet some of the UK’s most celebrated craftspeople. We welcome applications from talented makers looking to take their craft practice to the next level, and have a limited number of opportunities available each year that you can apply for.
