Cockpit Arts is offering tours of its craft business incubator centres to London based school and young learner groups (aged 16-24), free of charge for the remainder of 2017 and during 2018, thanks to the generous support of the Drapers’ Charitable Fund. During these ‘behind-the-scene’ tours, teachers and pupils will have the opportunity to meet a selection of independent craftspeople in their working environment; see how they work; view their creations; discuss the creative processes involved in their production, and hear about their career trajectories as well as their future aspirations.
To ensure a focus on specific teaching and learning requirements, each tour will be created for and with the school: They will comprise a mix of craft disciplinessuch as textiles, jewellery, ceramics, and specialist crafts, as well as craft business owners who are at different stages of career and business development. Selected craft business owners and their studio assistants will present an outline of the qualifications and pathways studied, to be used as a starting point for learners own research. Each tour will last one hour and will comprise visits up to 3 makers with time for Q&A.
