Young Craft Citizens: Cox Foundry Visit

Aged 16-25 and interested in a career in craft and 3D design , but feel mystified by what it looks like in real life? Come and meet Cox London founders Nicola and Chris as well as some of the professional craftspeople who work in their Tottenham workshop.

CHRISTOPHER AND NICOLA COX are both sculptors and talented artisans. They first began working together in the mid 1990’s, bonding over a shared love of the decorative arts.

Having created sculptural works as well as furniture and lighting together for some years, in 2005 they finally founded Cox London. Today they personally oversee the production of every piece they design, leading an in-house team of specialist technicians in their exciting London studio and workshops.

More about the Young Craft Citizens:

Creative and aged 16-25? Get involved with the Young Craft Citizens:

This network of Londoners aged 16-25 brings together those who are passionate about craft and making to co-produce projects and events with us at the Crafts Council, and in doing so help shape the future of craft in the UK.

Our mission statement:

“Young Craft Citizens are a young community of creatives, discovering diverse ways of making and sustainable craft, embarking on a powerful journey of passion”

Come along if you love to make, or are just keen to find out more - all backgrounds and experience levels are welcome!

We hold monthly get-togethers both at the Crafts Council in Angel and out and about at other venues. To find out more about our young people's programme and to be kept informed of all upcoming events, workshops and opportunities for young people, please email participation@craftscouncil.org.uk


Wheelchair Access Information

Our building is currently undergoing building works, and meetings are being held in our offices at the back of the building. The entrance to the back offices is paved with medium cobblestones. There is a ramp up to the entrance, and an accessible toilet in the building. We do have a lift, but our meetings do take place on the ground floor of the building.

Hearing Loop

During our building works we won't have a induction loop fitted, but when our Home for Craft is complete we will indeed have one in place. In the meantime, please get in touch at participation@craftscouncil.org.uk if you have any hearing access requirements

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are very welcome to come to meetings

Sensory Processing and/or Autism Related Requirements

The room we hold our meetings can be quite echoey, and with lots of people talking can get very loud. If this is a concern, let us know and we will hold the meeting in a quieter room with a closed door. We can also make sure our activity takes place in smaller groups if this is helpful. If there's anything else we can do to ensure you're able to take part, let us know by emailing participation@craftscouncil.org.uk

Learning Access

If you have a learning impairment and find certain adjustments helpful for you to take part, let us know by emailing participation@craftscouncil.org.uk
