Venue & Covid-19 :
We firstly want to assure our students that we are taking great care to enforce safe measures for each class & workshop to prevent the spread of Covid-19. The venue is fumigated between visits and the whole area is cleaned with antibacterial products before and after each visit. We will only be allowing 15 maximum into the venue that normally holds 50, to ensure space and therefore reassurance during classes. There are four separate toilets and we will be asking that all students take great care to wash their hands regularly, keep their masks on where possible, especially when moving around the venue, and to keep distance from other students as much as is possible. We want the class to be enjoyable so any concerns can be relayed to with complete discretion. We will also have gloves and masks available for use as well as hand sanitisers. The venue benefits from large windows and doors all round as well as a decking area to the rear for smokers or to get some air.
Workshops are designed to be suitable for both beginners and intermediates, the tuition is there to help you make progress and gain an understanding of the particular subject being taught.
Marketing Permissions :
We will be taking photos of the class/workshop and they may be used for marketing purposes including – but not limited to – website, adverts, media, print, social media and other marketing methods. If you do not wish to be included in any photos from the class or do not want to give your consent for any images to be used for marketing purposes, please let us know as soon as possible before classes start.
Check the individual class or workshop to see if materials are provided but generally, evening and Saturday classes usually have materials provided but workshops for longer periods require materials to be provided by you.
