We have cut our workshop classes in half to provide plenty of lovely space for social distancing. We ask that all participants wear a face mask. Each participant will have their own set of tools, brushes, your own towel (for hand washing) hand sanitiser and moisturiser, we've got to look after those hands :). After every class we have a strict cleaning regime. All fabric items used are washed and every tool/brush used are left in disinfectant for 24 hours and then washed. We clean and wash all surfaces and well... everything :) Due to the current situation we are unable to offer usual array of yummy goodies for you to munch on whilst we create. you are more than welcome to bring your own drink but we ask that you just nip outside of the studio to remove your mask. We do have shared toilet facilities just outside of our studio. Emily cleans these just before and after the workshop, please do bare in mind these are shared with 2 other small units on our site, there are cleaning facilities left in the bathroom if you wanted to use these. Any questions please do ask.
