funded places at cockpit

Funded places at Cockpit include studio space in London, as well as business support and membership of a vibrant craft community, giving you the space and time to develop your business or practice.

Our Awards

Cockpit makers are selected for excellence in skill, originality of ideas, drive to grow your business or practice, and  ambition to make a contribution to the Cockpit community.

Funded places you can apply for are listed below – some are specific to a particular material or discipline, others are open to all makers. We run two application processes per year (in Spring for a September start, and in autumn for a January start).

If you have any questions, or are unsure whether this is for you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
