Cockpit Arts is a charity which acts as a creative business incubator for designer-makers. It houses 165 artists and craftsmen at its two London studio spaces in Holborn and Deptford.
We have formed a partnership with Cockpit to provide support for recently-graduated weavers to enable them to have studio space and access to looms to be able to further their careers.
We have made a £25,000 grant to Cockpit to allow them to purchase two computerised swatching looms and fit out a suitable studio for use by six weavers. In addition, each of the weavers will receive a bursary to pay for 50% of the cost of the space and business support at Cockpit for a year.
