Knitted boxy tee

Owning our individuality, both as makers and as human beings, is one of the most important things we can do in life. After attending this year’s Mollie Makes Handmade Awards, I came away inspired by the amazing creatives that made the day so special. And, it wasn’t just their talent, but the way their brands are so reflective of who they are. Turn to page 36 to find out which nominees came top of their category, although I like to think we’re all winners! You’ll also find plenty of unique projects in this issue, from the floral wreath on page 18, with no two petals the same, to the handdyed napkins on page 62. Craft them in your own style, then share using #molliemakers.

Growing and learning with...

IMOGEN LAWRY We chat to Imogen from Cockpit Arts to find out how this awardwinning social enterprise helps put designer-makers on the map Words: HOLLY JOHNSON Photographs: RACHAEL SMITH

From the mid-1970s onwards, people flocked to Camden markets for their mix of music, street food, handmade clothes and vintage wares. With this in mind, it’s no real surprise that the area has continued to attract craftspeople, entrepreneurs and creative enterprises. It was 1986 when the seeds of one such venture were first sewn. On the site of a disused 18th century cockfighting arena, five units were set up to help unemployed young people launch their own craft businesses. The area, known as Cockpit Yard, has 26 MOLLIEMAKES.COM 96

since become a thriving community of talented designers, artists and makers, and under the umbrella of social enterprise Cockpit Arts, now houses 170 fledgling craft companies. Be it woven textiles, jewellery, ceramics, toys, bespoke headpieces or book art, it’s all handmade with love on this site. We visited the Holborn-based studios and caught up with Imogen Lawry, Cockpit Arts’ Business Incubation Project Manager, to learn how creatives and small businesses are given guidance to launch their careers.

Tell us more about Cockpit Arts. Cockpit Arts is an award-winning social enterprise and the UK’s only business incubator for craftspeople, housing numerous small businesses at our two centres. Cockpit Arts has been in Holborn for 32 years, and in 2002 we purchased a second building in Deptford. We support craft practitioners at the start of their careers, as well as those who are more established, to grow and build successful businesses. We work with a wide range of talented individuals, including master craftspeople, artist-makers, batch producers and makers at the beginning of their careers through our awards and bursaries. When and how did you get involved with the venture? I joined Cockpit Arts back in 2013 as the Business Incubation Project Manager, and since then have had the opportunity to develop our young people initiatives: the Creative Employment Programme, Creative Careers and our School Tours. In 2016 my colleague and I won the CCSkills Craft Award for making a difference to the lives of young people entering the creative industries. Before joining Cockpit Arts I worked at a craft gallery in London, helping

skills. By exploring different craft events, I discovered the organisations that support makers in London and then got involved behind the scenes.

Do you come from a creative background yourself? I studied Fine Art at University and, unknowingly, was using a lot of craft skills to create my work – from embroidery to mould making. It was only when I left university and wanted to create work without a studio space that I really got into learning new craft

What benefits do creatives take away from their time at Cockpit Arts? Essentially, we provide intensive wraparound support for makers – from oneto-one business coaching to a wide range of more practical business workshops. We call it incubation support as it’s designed to provide the building blocks for growing

THE LONDON LOOM Francesca Kletz and Brooke Dennis launched London’s first drop-in weaving studio in 2017. Francesca shares their story. Words: LOTTIE STOREY Photographs: INGRID RASMUSSEN

There aren’t many creative businesses that celebrate their second year of business and launch their first book on the same night, but the London Loom is one such success story. After closing her sewing studio in New Zealand to move to London with her family, Brooke bought her first loom and fell in love with a gentle, tactile practice that allowed her to flow with her intuition rather than following patterns.

her sister, before training to teach the technique in New York. The pair met in London, bonded over bagels and looms, and decided to open their own studio (or “just a colourful place with ace tunes and good chat”, according to their website).

We met the endlessly energetic pair to chat how it all began, what drives them, and why there aren’t more shades of neon green yarn.
