This Award aims to assist makers working in knit to start up and develop in business, by providing studio space and business support. We are looking for two individuals who demonstrate entrepreneurial spirit as well as creative excellence and craft skills and are committed to working closely with Cockpit to realise their longer-term goals.
This is a match funded place for one year worth up to £5,000. (The successful applicant will match this award by paying £500 over 12 months.) The total value of £5,500 covers the cost of studio space and support services Awardees receive. Please note that most studios are shared, and sizes vary but an average studio space per maker is around 100-150sq ft.
