Two BA Textile Design graduates from Chelsea College of Art and Design, Matt Jacques and Reeve Massey, have each won a Chelsea @ Cockpit Award worth £2,500.

The Chelsea @ Cockpit Awards are offered in partnership between the College and social enterprise Cockpit Arts. They are designed to assist Chelsea textile graduates in setting up a craft-based business by providing studio space and business support from Cockpit Arts.

Winners Matt and Reeve will each receive 50% towards the cost of a Cockpit Arts incubator package, which includes:

Studio space within the creative community of Cockpit Arts, Deptford, with access to office facilities and resource centre.

Business and professional development services, including on-site coaching, a personalised development plan, access to finance, workshops and seminars.

A range of selling and promotional opportunities, including Cockpit Arts Open Studios selling events.

“The Cockpit @ Chelsea Award is a great chance for anyone to progress as a designer so I am extremely grateful for the opportunity” Matt says. “I’m so excited to have received the award as already it has given me more confidence in my designs and the motivation to really focus on making my business work” adds Reeve.
