Thanks for visiting!

Many thanks to all who came to Cockpit Arts open studios. Our last show of the year is done and dusted, what fun it's been! Thank you for your continued support. Here are a few visuals of the event, including Business Incubation Manager and Hats For Everywoman project participant Imogen Lawry, with her new limited edition Petra cap.

It was a pleasure to be selected by Grant Gibson, editor of Crafts Magazine, for his special showcase during Open Studios. The cap shown is a limited edition men's Windswept Flat Cap, made in collaboration with innovative textile designers Dashing Tweed. The unique tweed is called Urban Check and glows in the dark. Find out more about the showcase on Cockpit Arts' website. The artwork you see in the background is by textile artist Ekta Kaul.

There is still time to order online for Christmas gifts (or a cheeky gift to yourself!). Most hats are made to order and in 90% of cases Karen can send your hat out within 5 days of placing an order.

Join us 23-26 November at Cockpit Arts Open Studios, to view Karen's full range, see for yourself which styles suit you best, or commission a unique hat to match your coat.

A preview of the new 'Two Cities' Atumn/Winter collection can be seen in the gallery, with a selection of new model photographs. The collection takes inspiration from Rococo fashion and hairstyles, and from architectural details around Paris and London.

This November, come and see where Karen Henriksen creates her thoughtful, innovative hats which are highly wearable and intended to last a lifetime. During open studios, Cockpit Arts becomes a hive of festive activity as all the resident makers open up their workspaces and showcase their creations. There will be live singers on the Thursday evening. Join us for plenty of festive handmade cheer!
