Participant numbers and social distancing

Workshop participant numbers will be capped at 6 people to retain small group numbers.

We will ask you to remain at the table space that you’ll have allocated and remain seated when working. You will have all the tools needed at your table to work away and have fun. There will be plenty of demonstrations by the tutor and help to create your artwork as needed.

Please note that we will be observing social distancing whilst trying to make this as normal a workshop as possible.  Bring your own face mask (if you are over 11). Hand sanitiser is available throughout the day.  Do not attend if you, or members of your household, feel unwell or have CoVid-like symptoms.  In any case we will be following the government guidance for children activities outdoors and if the guidance changes, we’ll be bound to observe it as necessary.
