An award for makers working in leather looking to take their business to the next level. The Leathersellers’ Award offers three years of business support, subsidised studio space at Cockpit Studios Deptford, and use of our well-equipped Leather Hub, generously sponsored by the Leathersellers’ Company.
This is a heavily subsidised space in shared studio for one year worth up to £5,600 with further support in years two (£3,400) and three (£2,200)*. (The successful applicant will supplement this award in first year by paying £1,000 over 12 months.) The total sum is linked to the cost of the space and support services. Electricity costs, insurance and office service charges will be payable on top and cannot be paid from the Award. The Award space allocated is at Cockpit discretion. Please note that most studios are shared, and sizes vary but an average studio space per maker is around 100-150sq ft. *Contributions of £2000 and £3000 over 12 months are required from the successful Maker in years 2 and 3.
