Discover the art of craft with the skilled makers from Cockpit, arguably one of the best craft studios in the UK

Arts 4 Dementia and Cockpit Studios are delighted to offer a 6-week craft programme with skilled makers from the prestigious studios based in Bloomsbury.

This exciting new programme is a chance for participants to try their hand at a number of new crafts including weaving and textile art from the brilliant resident makers.

Each session will focus on a different theme and craft, inspiring the activity for that day. Participants will learn new techniques and use a variety of materials to create a finished piece. There will even be a chance to exhibit your creations at the open studio event in November!

At the end of the session, there will be a chance to socialise with light refreshments. No previous experience is required, it is all about giving it a go!

Please note the workshop is free of charge and all materials will be provided.
