Craft Garden crowdfunding campaign is live!

Posted by Lucy McGrath on

Our studio building in Deptford (run by amazing craft incubator, Cockpit), has been undergoing major renovations that will result in a new, modernised Education Space where I and other makers can hold workshops - as well as a new cafe that will be open to the public (I am particularly excited about this, though it's probably not great for my caffeine addiction) and a Craft Garden at the front of the building where visitors can sit to sip a hot drink and admire craft pieces on display.

It's for this part of the redevelopment that Cockpit is asking for support, via a Crowdfunding campaign. The current space is inaccessible and a bit neglected, completely enclosed by a large foreboding wall. The plan is to open it up to the community and provide a space where people can connect over craft.

Cockpit are hoping to raise £15,000 to fund the transformation, through a crowdfunding campaign on Art Happens — backers can claim a reward for any donation between £5 and £3,300, including an exclusive marbling workshop hosted by me, plus a special notebook that we will make from your own marbled paper!

Please consider offering your support to Cockpit via a pledge - they do really important work helping people like me to access affordable space and business support. I would never have been able to grow Marmor Paperie as much as I have or share my craft through workshops without their support.
