We are lucky to have a studio space at Cockpit Arts and be part of the wonderful community here. Cockpit Arts is a social enterprise for craftspeople located over two sites and are home to 150+ talented designer-makers who work in a variety of creative disciplines to include ceramics, jewellery, illustration, furniture..
At the heart of Another Studio is the creative drive to design and develop new ideas into a finished product. The whole creative process - from initial sketchbook scribbles through to fiddling with prototypes and finally seeing the product in store - still thrills and excites me.
Whilst we design everything in our London studio, most of our products are manufactured by specialist companies who have the best equipment and teams working with them. I love to visit the factories and see our designs get made so I can really understand the process and ensure we are designing items in an efficient way (plus, I'm super nosey so enjoy a good snoop around!) ....
