The Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich and Cockpits Arts have come together to showcase Made in London, a range of specially created designer crafts inspired by the Jubilee, Olympics and London. Following the successful collaboration between the leading visitor attraction and the acclaimed designer makers in 2011, this new range of products includes ceramics, textiles, jewellery and more with prices all under £50.  The Made in London collection will be showcased in the Shop at the ORNC throughout the summer as London marks the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and hosts the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Old Royal Naval College (ORNC) can trace its Royal roots back to Tudor times when Queen Elizabeth I was born in Greenwich Palace, the foundations of which lie beneath the 18th century buildings of Sir Christopher Wren’s twin domed riverside masterpiece. The ORNC will mark the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II on 3 June with one of the UK’s largest street parties and a day of celebratory activities presented in partnership with the Big Lunch, Start and the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Meanwhile, from late July Greenwich Park, beside the ORNC, will host the Equestrian Events for the London Olympics. Taking these two landmark events as their inspiration Cockpit Arts designer-makers offer Gold, Silver and Bronze, “Olympic” bowls, Jubilee purses, horse and crown tea-lights, ‘Best in Show” rosettes and even a “sew your own pony” kit.
