Cockpit Arts Christmas Opens

Its Christmas time again which means our annual open studios at both Holborn and Deptford will be taking place. We are lucky enough to be exhibiting across both locations alongside 170 different designer makers showcasing their specialisms, with a great selection available to purchase as festive gifts. To give you an idea of the crafts practised at Cockpit Arts there are Weavers, Jewellers, Ceramicists, Illustrators and many more Cockpit Makers. This is a fantastic opportunity to see behind the scenes of working studios, not usually open to the public, and to purchase beautiful and unique wares direct from the best of London’s independent makers.

As you may know, Lorna has had her studio based in Deptford for a number of years, and thoroughly enjoys open studios as it gives her a chance to meet her supporters and fellow designer makers. It provides her not only with an opportunity to sell her product directly to you, but also a chance to see what other makers have been up to in the past year. Come and experience the warm and festive atmosphere for yourself and check out the ornate craftsmanship of the makers, offering different gifts to whats readily available on the high-street. Refuel yourself with delicious food provided by The Handmade Food Cafe and sip on mulled wine as your browse.

Deptford Opens also fall across Small Business Saturday – the first Saturday in December inspiring public to shop small independent businesses. We are extremely grateful for your ongoing support and encouragement of independent business, such as ours!

Lorna always creates a beautiful display, here are some images of previous Christmas Opens displays so you can get a feel for the event.
