Join us for a summer spectacular as 80+ designer-makers open their doors to the general public for a weekend of design shopping.
Cockpit Arts Summer Open Studios is a fantastic opportunity to buy direct from our design studio in the heart of Bloomsbury. Our full product range, including our latest designs, will be available, as well as on-the-day specials, samples and one-offs. We will be open alongside jewellers, ceramicists, glass makers, weavers and a host of other craft and design studios.
Cockpit Arts is home to some of the UK’s top designer-makers working in the craft sector today. Normally closed to the public, the bi-annual Open Studios events are a great chance to visit working craft studios in this former furniture factory. Its location in a cool little enclave of Bloomsbury that is steeped in history and full of independent shops and cafés makes for a great day out.
Special events will take place throughout the weekend, so pop along and enjoy:
– Delicious treats from Hand Made Food’s pop-up café
– Live summer jazz on the opening night
– Demonstrations and talks from designer-makers including jeweller DovileBertulyte, textile designer Julie Kouamo and paper marbling artist Lucy McGrath
– A showcase of designer-makers’ work curated by renowned leather designer Bill Amberg
