Cockpit Arts

Cockpit Arts


Cockpit Arts is London’s leading studios for contemporary craftspeople, designers and makers. An award-winning social enterprise, we’re home to 150 independent businesses at our two London bases. As the UK’s only creative business incubator for contemporary craft, we offer an expert business support package and dedicated studio space to enable makers to start and grow successful practices. Supported by bursaries, some 20% of businesses are based at Cockpit free of charge for their first year. Our youth programmes include careers and experience days for local schools and Make It! - a business start-up programme for currently unemployed or underemployed individuals. We also collaborate with local colleges, and work internationally training and supporting creative social enterprises and start-ups around the world. For other social enterprises and corporates, we offer low-cost central London venue hire, business support consultancy and train-the-trainer programmes, as well as tours of our award-winning, atmospheric creative studios.
