The Leathersellers’ Company Charitable Fund provides annual financial Awards to support up to nine makers working with leather through Cockpit Arts, London’s leading studios for contemporary crafts and the UK’s only business incubator for makers and designers. The studios are home to over 140 independent creative businesses at their sites in Deptford and Holborn which includes access to the Cockpit Arts Leather Hub, opened with the support of the Company in 2017.
In these difficult times, many of the Cockpit Arts community of makers have turned their hands to producing much-needed protective kit for local hospitals and healthcare trusts and have been looking at how else they can adapt in the current climate.
Opportunity to support our makers
Three of our recent Awardees are now creating and selling non-medical grade face coverings for the general public. Should you be interested in purchasing masks for yourself, family or friends, please consider supporting one of these independent makers at the same time.
