Cockpit Arts is an award winning social enterprise and the UK’s only creative-business incubator for designer-makers. Since it started in 1986 Cockpit Arts has helped thousands of talented craftspeople to grow their businesses, many of whom have gone on to achieve national and international success.
I am currently a Trustee for the company, having previously worked as the Development and Events Manager.
I was, in that capacity, responsible for a wide range of fundraising and earned income activities at Cockpit Arts including managing the Supporters scheme, venue hire and private tours. I also ran regular "Meet the Makers" events as well as helped organise the bi-yearly Open Studios.
