In order to make our shop and studio as safe for our customers and staff as possible whilst still maintaining the creative atmosphere that we love, we have made a few changes to our space and routine.
In the Shop:
The shop is currently only open for the collection of pre-ordered items. To place an order to collect, please call 01243 696789.
In the Studio:
At the beginning of each day temperatures will be taken on the way in to a workshop using an infra-red thermometer. Only those with normal temperatures will be able to participate. We wil also check you are feeling well and that we have the correct contact details for you.
Workshop participants will be required to wear a mask or visor at all times. Tutors will be wearing visors.
Workshops will be running with fewer participants than previously, in order to ensure that social distancing can take place.
Workshop participants will each have their own table (we’ve had beautiful new individual table tops handmade!). Where possible each participant will be suplied with their own individual tools and materials to use for the duration of the course, in order to minimise shared touch surfaces. All the tables will be distanced from one another, facing towards the tutor’s space.
Hand soap and hand sanitiser will be provided for workshop participants to use.
Access to the sink, presses and other shared pieces of equipment will be limited to one person at a time. Hands will need to be washed after using presses and handles will be wiped down between uses.
We have a brand new projector and camera for our tutors to use, enabling all the participants to clearly see demonstrations and examples clearly without having to gather around the tutor.
Unfortunately, for the time being we will be unable to provide refreshments – sorry! You are encouraged to bring your own bottles of water/ flasks of tea etc.
Workshop participants will have the opportunity to purchase materials from the shop but will be unable to browse as normal. Staff will be happy to help you choose your items.
We look forward to welcoming you all back to our space safely – we’ve missed you!
