Join us: London Creative Network


We are now inviting applications to join us from September to December 2022.

The London Creative Network (LCN) at Cockpit is a professional development programme designed to provide free creative business support to craftspeople who have talent and aspiration to succeed.

The LCN Programme has been running since 2016 and we’re delighted to share that we have received funding to deliver one final round.

This autumn, our workshop programme will focus on advancing your business practice through communication – from working out what you want to say, the relationships you want to build and to the self-assurance to deliver your message.

We’ll have specialist trainers sharing their tried and tested advice, complimented by sessions with our experienced Cockpit coaches to help craft makers put the wisdom into practice.

“To have such a range of workshops and support within one programme is incredibly helpful and the advice I have received really has provided me with a platform to move forward in my business.”
Majeda Clarke, textile designer.

The practical programme will be enriched through informal talks by makers, gallerists, journalists, and craft industry experts, all talking about why communication matters and their best practice tips.

If you’re a maker looking for support from experienced trainers and the knowledge of the Cockpit team, consider applying now.

This exciting programme is the final round funded by ERDF, and each place is worth over £1000 at no cost to you.

Deadline for applications: 8 August.
