Join our thriving community of craftspeople and you'll get so much more than just a studio.

With two locations in Central London, Cockpit is home to over 150 of the UK’s most exciting makers. You’ll be joining a thriving community with a global reputation for quality and excellence.

“My business has grown tremendously since being at Cockpit. Being here has made me much more professional and my reputation has really increased. My business now feels firmly established (which it didn’t when I first came to Cockpit) and I have gone past the point of no return! I have a waiting list of two years and the number of enquiries is growing exponentially- I cannot keep up!”

“Being at Cockpit I have had the chance to focus on my business model with the guidance of the business coaches. I am now thinking more about what my goals are and not just making for the sake of making. Being around so many other independent makers at different stages of their careers and working in a range of disciplines has been a great source of inspiration.”
