Last minute Christmas shopping? Us too…
But don’t panic! There’s still time to find the perfect gift to makes your loved ones feel truly special this festive season.
From unique jewellery to one-of-a-kind homewares and cozy knitwear to hands-on workshops that will spark their creativity, our Makers have you covered for thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list.
Jason Lock’s stabilised wood trinket and jewellery boxes are created by putting wood in a vacuum chamber filled with resin, whereby the vacuum sucks the resin into the wood. The wood is then cured in an oven, leaving it with a shiny and glossy finish that’s as beautiful as the jewellery stored inside.
For the stylish jetsetter in your life, look no further than the Michelle Wong’s ready to ship section. Her plant-based leather handbags, laptop cases, wallets, and keyrings are simple yet functional and made to last.
Give the gift of wearable art with jewellery from Chalk, founded by architect-turned-designer Malaika Carr. Combining unconventional shapes with vibrant colours, each item tells a story of its own and is meticulously crafted to embody the perfect balance between form and function.
Speaking of art, treat your loved ones to an original artwork from Amanda Ross, whose hand-printed botanical prints represent ideal gardens and landscapes and incorporate greenery from her personal collection of pressed plants.
Whether as a gift for a friend or a gift for yourself, Row Pinto’s hand-knitted cushions and throws are are the perfect way to add a splash of colour to your home. Made using the finest quality British yarns, these homewares feel as beautiful (and cozy) as they look.
Combining traditional goldsmithing techniques such as forging, soldering, and wire drawing with computer-aided design, 3D wax printing, and casting, Bola Lyon’s delicate and striking jewellery explores the architecture of the anatomy in precious metals.
Consider your stockings stuffed! Matthew Warner’s elegant stoneware teapots, cups, and saucers are inspired by eighteenth century pottery and porcelain and make the perfect gift for any tea or coffee lover.
What better way to share the gift of craft than with a workshop led by a Cockpit Maker? Our Makers are always adding workshops to our calendar, with both weaving and marbling workshops on the schedule for the new year. See the full schedule and book on our What’s On page.
