COVID NOTICE 2022

Hi everyone, A quick notice to let you guys know that we are taking every precaution to ensure a safe and enjoyable time at the workshops in 2022.

To ensure the safety of our attendees and team we are sourcing large halls that have a capacity for sixty plus people for a majority of our indoor studio days, we are limiting the number of people we will welcome on our days, this allows for comfortable physical distancing and for an enjoyable and safe experience for everyone.

We will be using a non-contact forehead thermometer to measure body temperature upon arrival of our attendees and we would kindly ask for those that are NOT vaccinated and have not had Covid, to perform a lateral flow test upon the morning of our event. 

Face coverings may have to be worn inside by the team and attendees due to the current government guidelines which we will be following closely.

We will have stringent protocols around hygiene, with hand sanitisation points also available throughout our days.
