We have devised a workshop hygiene procedure for all tutors to follow.
This includes wiping all equipment and surfaces with Steri-Dri alcohol sanitiser before and after every class.
All clip boards, ink jars, tables, and work surfaces as well as door handles, light switches and taps will have been cleaned with Steri-Dri.
Likewise, all furniture will be cleaned and sanitised before and after each workshop
We do not expect anyone to wear gloves as this will impede your ability to write, hand sanitiser will be provided, but please feel free to bring your own as well.
If you wish to use the bathroom, please ensure paper towels are disposed of in the bin and hands washed thoroughly.
Anti- bacterial wipes will be provided for you to wipe down taps, handles etc after use.
Hand sanitiser will be on a table outside the bathroom for you to use as an added precaution.
On arrival, a member of staff will be outside to meet and greet you & guide you to a parking space.
Please adhere to the current social distancing rule. We will have signage and floor markings to help remind us all.
On entering the studio, please use the hand sanitiser provided. You'll be given the chance to look around the studio and view Kirsten's inspirational artwork, before being shown to your seat.
Once seated, we ask that you remain there for the duration of the workshop other than to use the bathroom or emergencies
Please bring a mask with you if you would like to, however you don't have to wear one if you would prefer not to.
During the workshop we will practice 'no touch teaching' and endeavour to assist you this way as much as possible.
However, if you require more assistance, just ask, put on your mask and we will put on PPE and can then make adjustments where necessary to your positioning or materials, at a closer distance, safely.
Staff will wear appropriate PPE when handling food and drinks, which will be served to you at your table.
We’re currently in discussions with our regional venues to confirm new dates and class numbers so that we can reopen nationally ensuring the safety of our customers and staff.
We’re also offering live-streamed workshops as an alternative, for those who prefer to stay home, but wish to benefit from face to face instruction from our master calligraphers. These sessions are available as a group or one to one.
